Our program is built on the philosophy that knowledge builds upon knowledge and daily, repeated exposure to activities that promote basic skills and social development is the key to later success in school and in life. We strive to provide each individual child with an environment that encourages self-discovery and a commitment to learning. Children are encouraged to learn how to solve problems, release their creativity, and build social skills all while gaining the basic skills knowledge to help them be successful in kindergarten and beyond. All in all, our curriculum lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning!
Ultimately, we have but one goal: the optimal development of your child! We adhere to the highest standards of educational and child development. What's more, our dedicated staff has the experience and know-how to put these principles to work for each and every child. Thanks to our strong educational curriculum, outstanding staff and commitment to early childhood learning and development, Kids Under Construction Inc. stands out from other programs in our area. We offer a variety of specialized programs with a fine arts focus and an academic twist for children between the ages of 33 months and six years.
Our Preschool Program is tailored to best fit the developmental needs of three to four year olds and emphasizes fine and gross motor skills, socialization and self-discovery. The curriculum eases children into the wonderful world of learning through play and other hands-on activities. Children enrolling in our preschool program must be at least 32 months old and toilet trained by the start of the school year.
Our KinderJump Program is a PreK program designed specifically for children between four and six years of age and is intended to jumpstart their upcoming kindergarten experience for the following year. Children in this class will build on prior knowledge and gain new skills in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies through a mix of developmentally appropriate activities, learning centers, and structured lessons. The curriculum builds upon skills gained in our preschool program, and introduces children to additional concepts in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, social studies, art, and music, while continuing to guide children in their social development. Children enrolling in this program must be at least four by September 1st of the start of the school year.
A perfect option for your mini-Monet or petite-Picasso! ArtSmart! is our all-art inspired adventure camp that takes place during the summer. Children will learn, explore, and create their own masterpieces and more. Painting, drawing, sculptures, photography – the possibilities are endless! During our ArtSmart Adventure Camp, we will spend as much time outside as possible as well! ArtSmart Summer Camps are offered for a few weeks during the summer. Children enrolling in ArtSmart Summer Camps must be at least 3½ years old and toilet trained.
A new option for the 2020-2021 school year for children in kindergarten! Club Kindergarten will be a mix of playing, socializing, and academically structured mini-lessons in the areas of math, literacy, and science, and will function as a supplemental program to compliment your local school district's learning goals. Club Kindergarten will be offered 2, 3, or 4 days per week as a full day (9 AM to 2:30 PM) or afternoon (1 PM to 4 PM) class. We hope our program can offer you some help and peace of mind by providing a small group of 10 children with a somewhat "normal" school year and a place where we can hug them and love them up while we learn and grow together!
