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

  • Math/Science

  • Social Emotional Development

  • Gross and Fine Motor Skills

  • Sensory Regulation

  • Speech and Language, including Social Pragmatics. 

  • Social Problem Solving

  • Attention

  • Focus

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.
