Once a child turns three or four-years-old, many parents start wondering: Will my child be ready for school? This is a big question because “being ready” means more today than knowing shapes, colors, letters, and numbers. School readiness is about the development of the whole child – their social and emotional skills, physical skills, communication skills and cognitive skills. Children cannot thrive at school if they haven’t developed the skills to manage things like getting along with other children, following instructions, and communicating their needs.
At Cora’s Cottage, we provide many activities to develop these essential skills in a fun, friendly, and nurturing environment. Our experienced teachers guide children through Frog Street Pre-K (FSPK), a high quality, research-based curriculum organized into ten skill domains that support integration of curriculum and builds connections between and among all disciplines.
Highlights include innovations to produce measurable gains in student achievement:
- The authorship team of FSPK brings a wealth of expertise in the field of early childhood classroom experience, social and emotional intelligence, brain development, literacy, second language learning, STEM practices and cultural sensitivity to the instruction and materials in the curriculum.
- Another innovation is the inclusion of Conscious Discipline® strategies to support social and emotional intelligence and, in turn, cognitive performance. FSPK is the sole curriculum integrating this proven program into the daily instruction.
We offer morning only or full day programs. Call or come by for more details.
