The Transitional Kindergarten program at Fairwind Learning Center is a class designed for children turning five years old by December 1st that could benefit from one more year in a pre-kindergarten readiness classroom.
The curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate practices and designed by Master's level educators with extensive experience in the early childhood field. Our bright and cheerful classrooms provide an atmosphere which nurtures a positive and exciting learning environment and engages children in all facets of their development.
A highlight of our classroom is our custom built red cedar reading loft that invites children to relax and enjoy the pleasure of books. The Transitional Kindergarten classroom also extends to our multi-purpose room where students engage in art, music, woodworking, and gross motor play. This colorful and exciting space encourages children to create, imagine, design, and use their bodies and senses creatively.
We recognize that each student has individual talents and unique learning styles therefore we created an environment where everyone is respected and encouraged to be their best. The children will work in collaboration with peers and independently, exposing them to concepts and activities that will be introduced in kindergarten.
Each child is supported and challenged at his or her individual level of development. We guide the children in developing skills that are an essential part of everyday life through thematic units that spark the interests of the children. We thoughtfully design learning centers that create a fun, hands-on, stimulating learning atmosphere in which the children are excited to play, ask questions, and explore.
With our care and guidance, we invite children to become decision makers, problem solvers, observers, and empathetic friends. The children will develop positive self esteem, confidence within themselves, and a love for learning. We believe by creating a caring community it fosters both social and academic success as children play, laugh, sing, and have fun!
