AristoCat Children’s Academy is pleased to offer the hands-on learning our children need with kindergarten-readiness activities based on the best national early-childhood standards.
Throughout the year prior to kindergarten, your child will learn to be independent thinkers and doers. Children at this developmental stage require challenges, respond to motivation and crave encouragement.
In our Kindergarten Readiness curriculum, there are many independent, as well as group, activities for your child to enjoy throughout the day. These activities allow your child to enjoy learning and to share what they have learned with others.
To engage and nurture your child, we provide a balance of freedom and instruction. AristoCat Children’s Academy is where your child not only builds skills vital to success in kindergarten, but also gains respect for others and a strong confidence in him or herself.
They will explore, inquire and discover solutions while working alone and with others. Throughout our safe learning environment, we offer activities to develop literacy, mathematical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity, focused on important foundational skills.
