Preparing Children for Kindergarten
Providing your child an exceptional education that effectively prepares them for success in elementary school is an important aspect of our brand promise.
Our Ascend Curriculum takes a skill-based approach to early childhood education and our teachers help our young students work towards important early developmental milestones across nine different subject areas like Literacy, Science & Sensory, Technology, Physical Fitness, and Cultural Understanding each month. The development of these skill sets starts in our Infant and Toddler classes and progresses all the way through Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten. Important skills are progressively introduced at every age level and polished before kindergarten during our Kindergarten Club program.
