Kindergarten Prep Curriculum

The curriculum at Blackstone Valley Children’s Place is founded on the belief that all children deserve a firm foundation in educational skills.

Young children learn by doing. Connections are formed in the brain by active participation. Every child’s development will follow a different timeline and each child will have unique interests and aptitudes.

Content areas are addressed in developmentally appropriate ways that engage children; stimulating curiosity, exploration, and perseverance.

Language is one of the best predictors of academic success and as such is a major focus in our classrooms. The interrelationship of developmental domains allows us to craft meaningful experiences throughout the classroom which cross content areas.

Large group, small group, and individual child planning is based on careful observations of the children. Children’s knowledge, learning and experiences are documented and used to create curriculum that is meaningful and appropriate.

The narrowed age range, all turning 5 years old between September 2nd and February 28th, will allow us opportunities for lessons that focus on specific skills and abstract concepts. It could be as simple as scheduling 15 minutes of tying shoes or as complicated as understanding opposites! Parents will also start having the “school experience” as there will periodically be assignments sent home.

The BVCP Staff work together to help children develop the skills and knowledge they will need for success throughout their lives.
