One More Year to be Kindergarten-Ready

After a disrupted school year, you may have questions about the fall. Is your child not quite ready for kindergarten? Did they have an abbreviated Pre-Kindergarten?  

Consider Junior Kindergarten. Our all-day program offers a kindergarten curriculum adapted for a younger age group that ensures a successful kindergarten transition. It’s another year of critical skill development before elementary school, with a focus on: 

  • Self-regulation 
  • Following complex directions 
  • Effective communication
  • Sustaining attention

Comprehensive Curriculum and Knowledge Areas

Our Junior Kindergarten classroom provides a positive environment for your child to spend additional time gaining essential academic and social-emotional skills to succeed in kindergarten. With a robust, comprehensive curriculum, we enable students to increase their knowledge about the world around them. Classroom activities explore the following subject areas: 


Language & Literacy

Activities include naming all the letters (upper- and lowercase) in the alphabet, putting sounds in the right order, writing and reading short words, plus other early writing, reading, communication, and vocabulary.



Children receive an introduction to math concepts that they will explore more fully in kindergarten. There is both large and small group math instruction, daily math routines, and math workstations. Concepts such as numbers, sorting, ordering, and patterns are explored.


Nature and Science

Science is about exploration and discovery, so hands-on learning opportunities are used to learn about themes such as Animals; Transportation; Health and Feelings; Day/Night; and Growing.


Social Studies

Let’s take a look at ourselves, our families, our community, and the big, wide world.


Creative Arts

The ability to express themselves, their ideas, and their feelings, by engaging in experiences of music, movement, drama, and visual arts.


Physical Development and Health

The ability to use fine and gross motor skills to explore their environment, as well as to deepen their understanding of health and nutrition.


Critical Learning Skills

To develop a positive learning process, it’s important for children to strengthen six Critical Learning Skills: self-regulation; the ability to follow routines; to sustain attention; to take different perspectives; to follow complex directions; and to communicate effectively.
