The Wings Preschool Curriculum Is All About Making Learning FUN!
Kids Club House is continually complimented by the local schools for our success in best preparing children for kindergarten. The Wings Preschool Curriculum strives to foster the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of your child through fun and active learning experiences. Our curriculum is based around silly, creative approaches which use puppetry, skits and hands-on, entertaining tasks that expose children to all kindergarten readiness skills – letter recognition, letter sound, math skills, gross motor development, fine arts and handwriting*. A non-competitive teaching style supports each child’s unique qualities, allowing them to grow at their own rate.
Unusual Preschool Activities That Engage and Foster the Creative Spirit.
Building an applesauce stand with hammers and nails to sell the applesauce they have made. Producing movies. Writing and illustrating books for the school library. Orchestrating a school band. These are just a few examples of the unique activities we use to support our curriculum. We consider ourselves academic but promise to keep it fun!
Focusing on Pre-Kindergarten Social Skills and Your Child’s Emotional Well Being
We want to reduce children’s frustrations by giving them skills and allowing them to have the confidence to try their hardest. “I can do it” is a common chant at Kids Club House. To be a good student, children must be able to function well in a group. We have specific objectives each week to help them socially and emotionally. Our teachers encourage your child to participate in group activities, and to become sensitive to the feelings, interests and needs of others as they learn to control impulses and make choices that will build your child’s confidence to become “the best me I can be”.
We Don’t Forget That Children Are Children, Not Young Adults
Most importantly, children at Kids Club House are encouraged to be just that . . . CHILDREN! Learning should be a fun and nurturing experience. Our preschool program allows children to not only learn but to love school.
Handwriting Without Tears Preschool Program
Kids Club House incorporates the widely acclaimed Handwriting Without Tears program into our curriculum, which many of our local elementary schools are using. This program focuses on developing fine motor skills that promote good writing habits – which your child will carry on to elementary school – through many multi-sensory and fun activities like playing, singing and moving. It encourages children to use fine and gross motor muscles, and builds social, emotional and body awareness by teaching children how to sit together with other children, take turns and talk to each other. Handwriting Without Tears also builds vocabulary by teaching words that children need to know to follow directions. It also allows children to play and manipulate 3-D objects in order to become oriented with written symbols (A, B, C, 1, 2 and 3). We have found it incredibly rewarding to watch the success of this program grow.
Preschool Enrichment Programs
In addition to Preschool classes, we also offer enrichment programs that prepare the children beyond what is need for kindergarten. For more information, view our ABOVE AND BEYOND Programs: Reading Club, Math and Science Club, Cooking Club, and Art Club .
