This first class at Nomura Preschool lays the foundations for learning readiness and social interaction. Here we focus on sharing, role-playing, listening and communication. Colors, number concepts, animals, holidays, and feelings all enter into the Chicky curriculum. We make music a big part of the day, and we also work on potty-training.
Roosters are potty trained, know how to express themselves, and show courtesy and good sharing skills. As a transition class, the Roosters work on good citizenship, letters and numbers, painting and sculpture crafts, talking about stories, and patterns. Teachers of Roosters set an encouraging, individualized pace for learning.
Pandas are increasingly self-sufficient and begin to participate in games and math/reading exercises. Panda students work on calendars, shapes and patterns, and science topics like weather and seasons. We also work on writing skills and encourage imaginative free play with a variety of games and a library of books in the classroom.
Teachers focus on skills that prepare our Penguins for kindergarten. Writing, pre-reading skills, beginner math and creative arts are all used to encourage a love of learning and self-expression. Penguin graduates go off to elementary school with social awareness and academic confidence.
