Our "Kindergarten Bridge" program is designed for children who will be 5 years old before December 31st and who will be given the gift of time to continue to learn through play for an additional year at Weekday. This program has been developed to address the need to engage children with summer or fall birthdays who are five years old, but who need a bit more time before entering a rigorous learning environment. This will allow children to become more confident as they move to the next level of academic achievement. The curriculum will focus on all of the school readiness skills that will be necessary to provide a solid foundation for the many years of school to come.
Our K-Bridge is fully registered with the New York State Department of Education.
Our K-Bridge program assists children who have mastered most of the material in pre-school, but who may benefit from reinforcement in key areas to ensure their success in kindergarten the following year. The importance of reading readiness, language and literacy, writing skills, early math and science, and social studies are an essential part of the bridge class curriculum. The program will encourage children to find answers through exploration, experimentation, and conversation allowing for growth, confidence, and social maturity. Social and emotional growth will be targeted including, self-regulation, cooperation, communication and responsible decision making. The goal is to prepare the whole child for a lifelong love of learning, as these early learning experiences are the building blocks for future academic success.
