Kindergartners have so much to learn and at Wesley we believe children learn best through play & social interaction. Children engage in fun and interesting activities to meet the individual physical, emotional, and educational needs of each child. Activities are planned through weekly themes. Themes may include Dinosaurs, authors such as Eric Carle, The Solar System, Community Helpers, Shapes & Colors, Insects, The Alphabet, and Our Neighborhood. Daily activities focus on reinforcing kindergarten skills through all areas of the curriculum. Large group activities are alternated with free play through our child-friendly learning centers. Learning centers include writing, science & math, computers, art, dramatic play, games, listening, reading, sensory, and a block area. Large motor, outside time, and/or gym time is also incorporated into the day.
Each classroom is staffed with an experienced Teacher and Teacher's Assistant. Our teachers hold an elementary education or early childhood education degrees. Our assistants have previous childrelated work experience and have taken courses in education and may also have education degrees. Each program has a maximum daily class-size of 21 per day. Our enthusiastic teachers & assistants provide children with a safe and caring lea
