Kindergarten Program

Five-Year-Olds Achieving Above and Beyond!

What a thrill it is when your five-year-old wants to read to you! Your kindergartener may want to explain how a simple machine works or how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. Find out how your child prepares to be a successful, well-rounded individual ready for the world.

Right Experiences at the Right Time

Nothing prepares your child for success in elementary school like a strong kindergarten experience where your child expresses a new-found confidence and a joy for learning. Small group academic lessons and scientific

investigation go hand-in-hand with creative expression, physical well-being and social development.

Early Learning Domains

 

Approaches to Learning

Each child learns in different ways. The Primrose Balanced Learning® approach provides teachers with the tools and guidance to accommodate children’s natural curiosity and to fully support each child while building problem solving skills and confidence.

 

Science & Engineering

Children are natural scientists. They use their senses and special technological tools to observe and investigate their world, recording and analyzing their findings through writing, drawing or taking photos.

 

Language & Literacy

The early years are critical for literacy development. From sign language and story time in younger classrooms, to phonics and eventually reading and writing in our older ones, your child develops important literacy skills and a love of reading.

 

Creative Arts

Visual and creative arts stimulate imagination and creative thinking. In our proprietary Primrose Early Art Masters™ program, children discover early and contemporary artists and practice their techniques in their own masterpieces.

 

Physical Development

Active children become active adults. We show your child fun ways to practice proper techniques for movement, balance and motor skills with plenty of time to slide, climb and run on our age-appropriate playgrounds.

 

Math

Early experiences with math help children develop reasoning skills, inventiveness and persistence in problem solving. Our math program introduces numbers, measurement and patterns through hands-on learning.

Primrose graduates excel in their ability to relate to their peers, attitude toward learning, classroom behavior, concern and caring for others and ease of transition.
