For ages 4–5 entering PK–K in the Fall

Explore, Express, and Expand

Students will be able to:

  • transition from home to school with greater ease
  • learn to make new friends
  • explore the environment
  • make choices that are meaningful and challenging
  • become creative thinkers and problem solvers
  • gain self-acceptance and self-esteem
  • express ideas, feelings and experiences
  • work with other children and adults
  • learn to resolve peer and social conflicts

Young children learn about the world through a hands-on approach. Our theme this summer is Yosemite National Park. Science will come alive as children observe, question, investigate and experiment with native California insects, plants, and/or other things in our environment. Math will become meaningful as children count, problem solve, sort, measure and graph interesting objects found in nature. The world of reading and writing will become exciting and magical as children create and publish their own stories and books. The program will be interwoven with art, cooking, music, dramatic play, singing, block building and storytelling. Children’s individuality will be respected, and they will be encouraged to make choices and problem solve on their own. It is our goal to nurture the emotional, social, physical and cognitive life of each child while offering a place to appreciate the richness of a diverse world. The children will culminate the summer program with a celebratory party during class time.
