Our all day preschool education program "Fun While Learning" runs year round. This kindergarten readiness program, developed by our Program Director, is constantly being updated with the latest in quality standards. We utilize the pre-kindergarten standards of the Fresno, Clovis and Madera Uniﬁed School Districts, as well as provide progress reports twice a year to help assess kindergarten readiness. Our curriculum includes a full phonics program emphasizing reading awareness and writing skills along with sight words in easy-to-understand lessons. Math and science activities are also introduced, incorporating shapes, colors, numbers, simple math and hands-on experimentation with natural sciences. Our curriculum is rounded out with lessons in history and cultures, music, movement, physical education and arts and crafts. All aspects of our program are presented through visual aids including iPads, storyboards, finger plays, poems, puppets, books, class discussions and our hands-on computer labs. By incorporating ﬁeld trips to local areas of interest that correspond with our studies, we bring our themes out of the book and into a “real world” setting. Character development is addressed stressing honesty, respect, trustworthiness and kindness, thus helping prepare the children for elementary school programs such as “Character Counts."
At Kids Kare we celebrate the holidays with fun-filled events including Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, and, of course, Christmas with a visit from Santa. During the summer the children enjoy outdoor water activities, fun “theme” days, guest speakers, storytellers and demonstrations as part of our fun, educational curriculum.
We encourage participation with the family by hosting the ever popular special days like Mufﬁns with Mom, Danishes with Dad, a pancake breakfast for grandparents, an Open House and a graduation in June for those moving on to kindergarten.
Our Pre-K graduates enjoy a taste of some of our kindergarten and grade school summer activities with our “Pre-K Summer Blast.” Offering “big kid” activities and ﬁeld trips will facilitate the transition to the grade school classrooms where they will enjoy an even larger variety of activities in our Club Kids Kare. Here they will have access to games, a pool table, ping pong, Karaoke, arts and crafts and the latest in age appropriate video gaming.
In closing, we hope we have provided you with the information necessary for you and your child. We encourage you to stop by anytime with any questions or concerns you might have and look forward to welcoming you and your child to Kids Kare Schools, serving the needs of Valley families for over 55 years.
