Kindergarten Prep Ages 4-5 (Potty trained)
The class focuses on phonics, writing, and early mathematics. Great Start uses the nationally recognized Zoo-Phonics reading program, which is a method developed to make children strong readers and spellers.
Zoo Phonics uses a “phono” (hearing), “oral” (speaking), “visual” (seeing), “kinesthetic” (moving), and tactile (touching) —whole brain approach. It also focuses on autonomy, the skills of listening and following instructions and provides the format for the appropriate behavior that will be expected of them in Kindergarten.
Full time is considered 5 hours or more per day.
2-3 Days Per Week:
$45 per day
4-5 Days Per Week:
$38 per day
