Full day kindergarten program
Kids & Company’s Kindergarten Programs are designed for children who are 5 or 6 years old to prepare them for grade school. Our approach is encouraging natural curiosity to spark further questioning and self-led discovery, leading to a foundation for the love of learning. The kindergarten program supports learning, play and exploration while facilitating healthy peer interactions and relationship-building.
Above and beyond curriculum
Our kindergarten program pillars include early literacy, artistry, numeracy, science skills, music, drama and play. The curriculum is designed to foster a love of learning and the ability to ask questions, seek out answers and build self-confidence. We also include nutritional education and wellness in our program, which compliments the healthy, delicious food in our Kidco Kitchen menus.
Small class sizes
The Kids & Company kindergarten program remains at an 8:1 child to teacher ratio to ensure children receive individualized attention and the support needed to maximize their learning potential.
Adaptive student-led learning
Children learn best when their environment is geared to their interests. While every student in our program will gain the competencies needed to succeed in first grade, we are not limited to simple skill-building. Our small class sizes and our staff trained in adaptive early education allow us to tailor each student’s learning experience to his or her individual interests and developmental levels. The result is a structured atmosphere that encourages and creates self-guided learning – students want to learn because they love what they are doing.
Streamlined schedules for more family time
We recognize how stressful it can be to have one child in child care and another in the school system. For families who have a Kindergarten age child and a younger sibling, this program provides one drop off and pick up location. It also provides extended hours for our kindergarteners to continue learning and developing alongside children their own age, rather than in school-sponsored aftercare programs with children as old as 5th and 6th grade.
Healthy, Chef-prepared menus
As part of our kindergarten program, all of our students have lunch and snacks provided by our Kidco Kitchen. The menus are created by a nutritionist, cooked by chefs and approved by kids. Meals are served family-style, with students and teachers sitting and eating at the table together. Our food program extends beyond the lunch table. We focus on teaching children where food comes from and the basic knowledge of food groups, vitamins and minerals. See our menus and read about why our parents LOVE the Kidco Kitchen.
