“We have had both our children enrolled at Adventures Learning Center in Portage, Michigan for the past six years. It is due to the safe, caring and structured environment they offer that we have remained loyal to this center. The care they have received from the staff of the center is second to none.” The Feltch Family
The journey down the road to kindergarten is full of adventures, exploration, new discoveries, investigations, problem solving, and curiosity! While there is no exact formula to determine if your child is truly ready for kindergarten, there are multiple steps we use to help prepare them, with your help! All children learn at different levels. Young children learn so fast that while they may not be able to do something one week, their skills may grow a couple of weeks later.
Our kindergarten readiness begins in the earliest years (Infant, Wobbler, Waddler and Toddler Rooms) and builds each year into our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms (Red, Blue, Purple, Yellow Rooms) that prepare children for success in school. With this program, we are confident that each child will have an early education foundation that instills confidence, knowledge and self-assurance; giving them the building blocks for success and a lifelong love of learning.
Preschoolers are independent and eager learners. Our philosophy, supported by current research, is that preschoolers learn best by “doing,” or through interactive play in an environment that is rich in experiences and exploratory opportunities. In the Preschool and Pre-K classrooms, each day has a schedule that includes group times (circle time, story time, etc.) as well as center or child choice time. The planned activities encourage language development, mathematical reasoning and scientific thought.
