Bridges, A Transitional Kindergarten Program
This exciting and progressive program is now at the JCC. Transitional Kindergarten, for children that miss the kindergarten age cut-off and children who may benefit from an extra year before moving on to kindergarten, is designed to enhance readiness for kindergarten learning. We will support children’s love of learning and offer encouragement in areas that help develop social, emotional and academic skills needed to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Project-based learning units will frame the direction and scope of the curriculum in this innovative program.
Full-Day Kindergarten - for 5 - 6 year olds
The JCC’s full-day kindergarten is the perfect combination of progressive academic learning and a warm, nurturing environment. The curriculum focuses on the whole child. Reading and literacy skills are developed through guided reading, phonemic awareness, shared reading, interactive read-alouds, creative writing and the integration of other disciplines into the reading world. Everyday Math provides a hands-on approach to mathematics. Social Studies and Science stem from the children’s natural curiosities and take a project-based learning approach. Jewish values, stories and culture are celebrated in kindergarten. Students participate in art appreciation, physical education, music and swim instruction. Kindergartners are our school’s “seniors” who learn to be responsible, accountable members of the JCC school community. They are well prepared with a strong foundation to enter first grade.
