The Apple Jacks class is our pre-kindergarten class for children ages 4+. This class meets three times a week to help prepare children for the traditional kindergarten environment. In our Jacks class the children do have a “have to” each day to prepare them for Kindergarten so they can learn to follow directions and to complete tasks. There is a lot more exposure to letters and numbers in this class during Circle Time and during some of the daily table activities. Socially, this age group will develop friendships, enjoy imaginative group play (like “house” or “store”), and will stick with difficult tasks for longer periods of time – controlling frustration and/or anger. Our Jacks class also goes through a graduation ceremony at the end of the year!
