Pre-K (Three and Four year olds)
The first question a parent should ask when researching a quality Pre-K program, is what that program would look like on a daily basis. At The Kid’s Corral, we use high quality, research-based curriculum to ensure that the children are exposed to a variety of learning opportunities. When you walk into the classroom, you will immediately see learning occurring. Children are engaged in small groups reading books, building interesting structures with blocks, and determining what sinks and what floats at the water table. The teachers are asking questions, pointing out children’s successes and guiding learning. The room has a sense of purpose, organization, and excitement.
Preschool children at The Kid’s Corral are taught by trained staff, using a professionally designed curriculum. The classrooms provide loving, structured learning for all children. The curriculum prepares preschoolers for their future educational experiences through a developmentally appropriate approach.
Students begin to learn phonemic awareness and letter recognition, critical reading and thinking skills and age-appropriate math concepts. Just as in the toddler room, children in pre-school also participate in daily interactive reading activities, promoting literacy skills.
The curriculum promotes independence, fosters decision-making and encourages hands-on participation through books, puzzles, painting, cutting and more. Children explore learning concepts in thematic based units, created to accommodate all learning styles.
Children have opportunities to sing, dance, play, talk, create and have fun! The outdoor playground is developmentally appropriate providing each child with the fun and active play necessary for a well-rounded, positive daily experience. Each parent receives a daily report to keep them informed of their child’s activities, discoveries and advancements.
PART TIME PRE-SCHOOL
The Kid’s Corral also offers a part-time preschool for children whose families are not seeking full time care, but would like their child to have the opportunity to attend preschool. This program is taught by trained staff using the same curriculum as our other preschool classrooms. Children participating in this program attend a shorter day (9:00 AM – 2:00 PM) and follow Denton ISD and Aubrey ISD school calendars.
