3 Year Olds
The children in this class range from 2 1/2 to 3 years old. This is our youngest class available. Our three year old classroom is constantly alive with energy and learning! Children in these classes are given numerous opportunities to learn through play with a variety of amazing hands-on activities, and arts and crafts. We work on large and fine motor activities, and allow plenty of time to interact with their peers to let their social skills grow organically. Unique lessons paired with a compassionate and positive learning environment are all valuable components of this class for your student!
4 year olds
This classroom has been designed as a great stepping stone for children preparing to enter kindergarten. Age appropriate activities focused on letter and number recognition, pre-reading skills, writing, math, and problem solving. Students in the class are given countless opportunities to express themselves creatively, learn effective communication skills, and interact with their peer group.
Classroom activities emphasize different themes as children interact with their environment and materials. The classroom schedule includes circle time, outside play time, sensory explorations, fine/gross motor practice, and so much more! Handwriting Without Tears is the curriculum of choice as the kids learn upper case letters. This class is a perfect choice for inspiring a love of learning for years to come and provides a solid foundation for future learning success.
Blue Spruce Class
4 year olds
Similar in design to the 4 1/2 year old class, the full day class provides more time to explore science and a more extensive Bible curriculum. The schedule also incorporates rest and lunchtime.
5 Year Olds
These classes are specifically designed for children who miss the August 1st deadline for the Montrose County School District kindergarten program, or for those families who want to allow more time for their child to mature before entering kindergarten. This class is a wonderful way to give your child the “gift of time” and prepare for the best possible educational success.
Children in these classes are challenged to learn at a higher level as teachers have high expectations for them. Learning opportunities in the classroom are focused on an author and artist of the month. Children explore different literary concepts, while also experiencing and experimenting in various forms.
Jr. K was born and created out of a community need for a different kindergarten option before entering 1st grade. Our curriculum is a customized comprehensive kindergarten program.
