A Social Group with an Academic Focus for 5-6 year olds led by a Special Educator with support from OT and Speech. Geared for half-day, full-day and homeschooled Kindergarteners. All academic goals align with the Common Core State Standards.
Areas of focus include :
Language Arts with a Whole Language Approach
Social Emotional Development
Gross and Fine Motor Skills
Speech and Language, including Social Pragmatics.
Social Problem Solving
Time is spent both in the classroom, and in our sensory-motor gym and art room.
For our Full Day Kindergarteners, the morning is focused on the therapeutic component and the afternoon includes academics. Children bring lunches for a Lunch Bunch midday that can incorporate any feeding goals.
All Kinder Buds groups are insurance eligible. The full day option is tuition-based, but portions of the day are insurance eligible, as well.
