Preschool Practice - Ages 33 months to Kindergarten
This learning experience is available Monday-Friday, 9:30am-12:30pm on a daily or weekly basis, with no commitment required. HourKids offers age-appropriate educational programming that includes morning large group where we read, sing and dance together, followed by a small group activity where we do some hands-on learning with pre-literacy and pre-math manipulatives, and other guided learning activities. We round off the experience with "choice time". Choice time is free play; a play time essential to explore the classroom toys and learn how to use materials while having guidance-based interactions with our Teachers. In additional to formal learning, the free play time allows your child to learn and navigate social emotional concepts and how to prepare for other formal Preschool settings. HourKids Teachers will help guide your child through sharing, expressing themselves, taking turns and being a good friend in a classroom setting. Preschool Practice is most beneficial for children that will be attending school district preschool programs, or children that may need extra socialization before Kindergarten.
