​2-Year Old Toddler Program
                               (Tuesday/Thursday: 9:00 to 11:00)

 

Looking for a safe, loving and nurturing environment for your 2 year old? 

          Our toddler program focuses on YOUR child's individual needs!!

Any child is welcome to join our toddler program at any time during the year.  During the time spent with us, we will be introducing them to our "3-S" program.  Each day we will work on ·Separation,  ·Sharing,  and   ·Socialization.

 

  • Separation: For most children this age, this will be their first time separated from their parents.  We work with you to alleviate any stress they may feel by making this first separation as much fun as possible.  We sing finger songs, read stories, play games and even blow bubbles.  If your child has something at home they use for security, they are welcome to bring it to school to help them get through this time.

  • Sharing: This age is not to young to learn to share with their friends.  We show them everyone can have a turn with all the toys.  We also reinforce using our manners.  Please and thank you are always a big thing at Beyond the Rainbow. 

  • Socialization: Having your child be a part of a group of children helps them build the self-confidence to speak up in a group to share their ideas.  We have found in the past that even having children with delayed speech participate in a group activity is a positive reinforcement.

 

***Your child  does not  have to be potty-trained to attend our program.  We change their pants while they are with us.  We do not call you to come change them.  There are no field trips involved in this class.  These children will have the experience of field trips the following year when they attend our M/W/F - 3 & 4 year kindergarten readiness and pre K class.

 

​3-Year Old Pre-K Program

(Monday/Wednesday/Friday: 8:45 to 11:15 or 12:00 to 2:30)

 

TABLE TIME:  During this time the children focus on different types of academic works:

  • Worksheets & Workbooks:   Learning colors, shapes, sizes, letters  & numbers. We work with each child individually so we know exactly where each child is academically.

  • Group Direction:  We also work with the children in a group situation so they learn to take direction and follow through and stay with the entire group.

  • Colors & Shapes:  Each 3-year old Pre K child will learn to recognize and then name each color and shape. 

  • Numbers:  Each 3-year old Pre K child will master counting to 20 and begin to recognize numbers 0-10. As each child progresses we continue and move on.

  • Letters & Phonics:  They will begin to recognize each letter of the alphabet along with the phonic sound of each letter.

  • Arts & Crafts:  The children love to do their art projects.  They bring their treasures home each week to share with you!

 

Our program will focus on the physical, emotional and social growth of each child.  We will stress self-confidence, self-discipline, and independence in both emotional growth and socialization skills.  We practice at school and promote everything with a positive attitude!

 

4-Year Old Kindergarten Readiness Program
(Monday/Wednesday/Friday: 8:45 to 11:15 or 12:00 to 2:30)


TABLE TIME: During this time the children focus on different types of academic works:

  • Worksheet & Workbooks: Learning rhyming, phonics, letter recognition, number recognition, matching, shapes & sizes, & story sequencing. Group Direction: We do our worksheets & workbooks as a group, learning to take group direction and keep up with each direction given.

  • Lined Paper: We work with each child individually so we know exactly where each child is academically and so we know exactly what each child’s individual needs are. Each child in the Kindergarten Readiness Program will learn to hold their pencil with their “pincher” grip and learn to control their pencil. They will then move on to printing each letter of the alphabet (upper & lower case). They will also be learning to print their first name.

  • Colors & Shapes: Each child will learn to name each color & shape required for kindergarten screening.

  • Numbers: We will be counting to 100 during this program. Each child should be able to name numbers 0 – 10 also required for kindergarten screening.

  • Letters & Phonic: We will be working on naming each letter of the alphabet along with the phonic sound of each letter.

  • Arts & Crafts: The children love to do their art projects. They will bring their treasures home each week to share with you!

 

Our Kindergarten Readiness Program will focus on everything they need to know to enter kindergarten.  We get them ready for their kindergarten screening.  We stay in contact with kindergarten teachers to be able to introduce your child to all the new things they will be leaning in kindergarten. We stress self-confidence, self-discipline, and independence in getting them ready for kindergarten.  We practice at school and promote everything with a positive attitude!

 

We send home progress reports every three months to keep each parent aware of their child’s

individual progress.  If a parent has any questions or concerns, we are available for a conference concerning their child any time at their convenience. 

We hope to make your child's first learning experience a fun and exciting one.  Please call us for more information or if you have any questions. (518) 435-1391. Looking forward to hearing from you!!!!!
