Kindergarten these days is much more academic than it used to be, and many children enter unprepared. In fact, over 200,000 kids repeat kindergarten every year. High quality Pre-K education is essential to readying kids for the next stage of learning and life. Based on research and proven results, our pre-kindergarten program builds on your child’s earlier learning experiences advance literacy, vocabulary, math, problem solving, and fine and gross motor skills. Independent and cooperative learning opportunities guided by our skilled, nurturing teachers serve to strengthen social skills, equipping your child to enter kindergarten with confidence.


Mathematics: With the Funshine curriculum, your child will count and compare objects and groups of objects. Your 4 year old will participate in making graphs, completing patterns and measuring things with conventional and nonconventional measuring tools.

Language Arts and Literacy: At 4 years old, children begin to realize that they can put letters together to make words, and words together to make sentences. Your child will practice writing skills while writing his name and simple words. All 4 year olds love to sing, recite poems and share stories about their lives. We let your child lead the way as our expert teachers give encouragement to help your child along.

Science: At 4 years old, children are naturally inquisitive. With the science portion of the Funshine curriculum, children make observations, chart weather daily  and identify differences in the seasons. They plant seeds and record the growth, learn the importance of keeping the earth clean and how to recycle at school and home.

Social and Emotional Development: Children begin to understand the meaning of friendship by the time they’re 4 years old. They hug each other or sit with their arms around one another as they read a book. They begin identifying their feelings. At Kiddie Corner Academy we encourage children to discuss their emotions, to tell friends why they are special and to share enthusiasm for new people and new things.

Fine Motor Skills: At 4 years old, children have good control of their fine motor skills. They use crayons to turn scribbles into letters and words. They can zip, button and snap their own clothes. During Family Style Dining, 4 year olds will serve themselves, passing food to others and use forks and spoons to eat.

Gross Motor Skills: At Kiddie Corner Academy we know that learning happens all the time, not just in the classroom. When your child is outside on our age-appropriate playground, the learning continues. Your child will chase friends, climb up the ladder and slide down the slide, walk like a gorilla and jump like a kangaroo. 

Character Education: At Kiddie Corner Academy we believe it is important to introduce children to a wide variety of character traits. In order to further your child’s character development, we focus on a positive value each month; such as, honesty, generosity and patience. This helps children better understand our society and helps them develop into caring young adults.
