Jungle Junction is our PreK class. In this class, we finish learning what is needed for kindergarten. We work on letter sounds, writing letters, numbers, math skills, and introductory time skills. We also work on the social skills, and self-help skills, necessary for kindergarten.
Our curriculum in Jungle Junction is Galileo PreK Online. Children this age learn best through play. So lessons are taught using games, songs, and hands-on crafts. As well, our classroom is set up in centers. This allows the children to learn and discover on their own, and develop their own unique interests. We want to help the children develop the skills and confidence to be life-long learners. A teacher is a wonderful facilitator of learning, but is not the only source of knowledge. By having a play-based classroom, and a schedule with a mix of child-directed and teacher-directed activities, we
have created an environment that allows the children to develop these skills.
