More information on our Voluntary PreKindergarten (VPK) Program
Our VPK teachers are dedicated, well-educated, long standing employees. We use a very successful and enjoyable curriculum, Creative Curriculum.
Before the VPK sessions start, all parents are invited to our very informative orientation evening. Children are invited to come too to meet their teachers and get to see their classroom. This year our orientation dates are -
Midtown Cape Coral: July 7th at 6:15 PM
North Fort Myers: July 8th at 6:15 PM
Downtown Cape Coral: July 9th at 6:15 PM
In order for us to be sure that every child is progressing well, as well as closely observing their progress daily, we assess the children with the Department of Education AP1, AP2 and AP3 assessment tools throughout the year. We share this information with parents and develop strategies together to help children improve in any area of need.
Our VPK Program has a strong emphasis on learning by doing. The more interaction a child has with their learning environment, the better.
EXCITING EDUCATIONAL FIELD TRIPS
We take our VPK children on very interesting field trips to broaden their experiences. Every year, at a minimum, our children visit the local fire station, a farm, and an assisted living center and participate in a trick or treat parade around local businesses. We are well-known locally for having beautifully behaved and happy children out in the community.
All kinds of interesting people come to visit us and talk to the children about what they do. Policemen come with their police dogs, veterinarians bring small pets, and dentists come and show the children how to care for their teeth properly. Sometimes cartoon characters come to visit too! For parents, we always invite a Kindergarten teacher to come and speak about what to expect in Kindergarten.
We have a very high degree of parent involvement and love it when parents share in our classroom activities. We so enjoy getting to know our families as this helps us to get to know our children and better meet their needs. Parents also love coming with us on our field trips. We share information with parents on how to enhance their child’s learning with entertaining home activities. We are always available for parent conferences.
Exciting field trips
Over the past 26 years of being in business, we have developed numerous relationships with other business and organizations within our Cape Coral community, allowiung us to enjoy amazing field trips to these places.
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS and NEWSLETTERS
Once a week we give the children a fun-to-do homework assignment. This is a delightful way to prepare children for more serious homework assignments once they start school. Children are also given letter writing practice sheets. Parents receive a weekly newsletter.
We have bilingual teachers here. Children are taught in English as they will need to be fluent in English in school but we like to incorporate Spanish into our curriculum. The onsite owner speaks German, French and Spanish.
Our graduations are well-known throughout the Cape when the children dazzle their parents and relatives with truly delightful performances to demonstrate what they have learned through the year. At graduation, each family receives a DVD with wonderful memories of their child’s VPK year.
