There's a lot going on in our classrooms. Learn all about it by visiting our classroom pages. If you're a parent, you can join your child's classroom group and receive updates and additional information specific to your child's class.

Cuddles, snuggles and warmth are part of our everyday routine, along with story time and the development of small and large motor, social and language skills.  We take great pride in giving each infant the attention and love he or she deserves.

A variety of methods are implemented to model and help develop positive social behaviors and to promote language-rich experiences. 

Story times, large and small motor experiences, and music/movement activities are encouraged on a daily basis for age-appropriate physical and cognitive growth. Your little Penguin will be cared for with patience and tenderness, while given the  opportunity and tools to learn and grow at his or her own pace.

There is no doubt that toddlers are little bundles of energy, and much of it is focused on imitating everything around them. At KTK, we welcome that energy and excitement because it’s a natural part of growth and learning. The Parrots classroom is all about creating experiences that are active, sensory-based and meaningful. The teachers lead the Parrots through age-appropriate activities that promote the independence and enhance social skills.

This classroom also introduces creative learning centers in which your child can explore language and reading, construction, fine motor activities, dramatic play and outdoor learning.

What's better than watching a two-year-old show off their new skills? In our opinion, not much, except for watching them take those skills to the next level! In the Peacocks classroom, children learn through various hands-on activities and play. Some of the activities include teacher-directed art projects, music and movement, outside time, and circle time activities, which include stories, weather, talking about the day and learning new songs.

Teachers also promote independence during daily routine activities like eating, potty-training, hand washing and cleaning up. Children also build on their social skills by learning to take turns, share with friends and use words to express their feelings.

Our preschool learning environment is primarily based on curriculums used in high-quality early education settings throughout the United States. It consists of well-planned learning centers that allow for child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching that prepares children for academic excellence. Children are encouraged to learn by doing.

The development of language, mathematical reasoning and scientific thought is emphasized throughout all the centers. Along with focusing on age appropriate academic topics, building social skills and developing positive character traits, your child will have many opportunities to learn through play and planned group activities.
