We are SO excited to offer a new kindergarten program for the 2018-2019 school year. This is a full-day, 5 day/week kindergarten program from 7:30 am - 4:30 pm, with school from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm. The 9-month cost of tuition is $5040.00 or $560.00 monthly. Space is limited to 15 students, so there is not a part-time price- but A and B kindergarten schedules are more than welcome to supplement your child's existing program. The kindergarten program is planned to start the day after Labor Day on Tuesday, September 4th. The program will be taught at our 16281 N Franklin Blvd center.
When children investigate, discover and play - they learn! That is why we are proud to teach the Creative Curriculum from Teaching Strategies- a research-based, teacher-recommended, whole-child focused approach to project-based learning in the kindergarten classroom. Watch this informational video to learn more about the Creative Curriculum for Kindergarten.
Please welcome our new kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Warren.
"Hello! My name is Gina Warren, and I am very excited to be the new kindergarten teacher at Kangaroo Clubhouse! I graduated from Corban University in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education, and taught prekindergarten in Washington for 5 years. While teaching prekindergarten, my classroom became NAEYC and QRIS certified.
It is such a privilege to watch children transform as they learn new social and academic skills! My favorite things to teach are reading and science because both allow the children to explore for themselves and make connections with the world around them."
Please join us Thursday, August 16th from 6-8 pm and Friday, August 17th from 3-5 pm for a Meet & Greet with Gina- come with your questions and see the classroom!
Meet & Greet will be held at the Franklin center: 16281 N Franklin Blvd. Nampa, ID 83687.
If you’re the parent of a young child, you know how hard it is to balance work with child-rearing. Throw in any classes you may be taking, or hobbies you may have, and that pretty much takes care of all of your free time. While putting your child into a daycare center is often the first thing parents think of, enrolling him or her into a quality early learning center is frequently the best option. Why send your child to a place where they’ll just be watched when you can get a head start on their education? Here are a few reasons why so many parents are enrolling their children into child care learning centers.
Learning how to socialize with other children - as well as adults outside the family - is an important part of growing up. Child care learning centers provide the opportunity for children to develop these skills within a controlled environment. Furthermore, the increased independence that comes with being outside the home - but under supervision - teaches the child how to take care of themselves as well as others. This, in turn, affords them the opportunity to make friends outside the home for the first time in their life.
The ages between 3 and 5 are critical in a child’s educational development. By enrolling your child under the supervision of an educator, you’re giving them a head start on developing their cognitive and language skills. Also, at this age they are at their most curious. Why not take advantage of that curiosity by introducing them to concepts such as reading and math? In fact, just by placing them out of the home and into an educational environment encourages their natural curiosity by letting them discover the world around them.
Enrolling your child in a child care learning center is just the beginning of a long academic career, and there’s no better training for the long road ahead.
