A kinder "garden" where children are nurtured as they grow!
The curriculum at EDUPRIZE School focus's on the whole child. Each area of the child is nurtured as we meet their developmental curricular needs. This is completed through a comprehensive program that consists of: a phonics based curriculum, thematic/science-based units (better known as Cottages), writing program, Saxon math, music, art, computer lab and special science class just for kindergarteners.
Quarter 1 is so exciting. We focus on learning all about your child, the child's family and the child's community. We introduce the child into their school community with open arms. Students learn how to work as a team, develop friendships, and to work in small groups through our unique EDUPRIZE Labs. The Cottage focus this quarter is called All About Me. Each student will be the special kid for one week. They will also create a Celebrate Me box which describes their special interests. The quarter will finish up with a Cottage Fair that is reflective of the student, their family and community.
Quarter 2 is a blast. We get into more writing, writing, writing. We have a saying, "Reading through Writing and Writing through Reading!!" Our focus at this time is Fall and Harvest as well as Animals, Animals, Animals. One of the most exciting adventures is at the end of the quarter. We will issue passports to the children and take off on our adventures around the world. This is fun and exciting time for all.
We believe Quarter 3 to be the children's favorite. They love the cold and hot deserts! Did you know that a desert can be "cold"?We learn all about the environment in each desert such as: snakes, lizards and penguins. It is unbelievable all that the children learn. Here their journal writing really takes off as they are anxious to write about all that they have learned!!! We end this quarter with an incredible "Beach Day"
Quarter 4's surprises keep them wanting more. As we learn about life cycles by hatching eggs, turning caterpillars into butterflies and watching tadpoles turn into frogs. If we can find anything else, we'll try that too! The children will create their own Life Cycles 3-D book. We also plant in our own EDUPRIZE garden. The children love to watch, wait and see the changes. They enjoy caring for our "cycle" projects.
The year ends with a kindergarten celebration unlike any other. This is a wonderful display of songs and movements reflective of the curriculum throughout the year.
This science based program continues through the year with a strong phonics program, the continuation with Saxon math and in incredible Four-Blocks Writing program. Reports are also done by the students twice a year. But most importantly we work with you to nurture a love for learning and education that only EDUPRIZE can provide.
