Our Early Preschool Program

2 years old - 3 years old

Kinder Prep recognizes that children have an inner ability to explore and learn on their own. Early Preschoolers can walk into the classroom by themselves, they can take off and hang up their own jackets and backpacks. They learn to use the toilet and to wash and dry their hands and faces. They learn by interacting with classroom materials, by moving, and by observing other children - and by teaching other children themselves. Kinder Prep Preschoolers grow confidence and independence. They enjoy learning to do real-world tasks for themselves - and parents enjoy seeing these skills put to use at home. In Kinder Prep, our approach is based on the premise that children’s earliest experiences help them become peaceful, caring, sensitive, and healthy individual.

Children learn to trust themselves and the world and to recognize their own competence. They learn to make decisions and to understand that their behavior affects others, who also have needs and wants. They learn to appreciate nature, to care for their bodily needs, and to persist. They develop a love of learning and experience the satisfaction of success.
