Wave Preschool classes are age specific. We incorporate a quality learning experience using the Creative Curriculum as a foundation to create learning environments. Children will enjoy fun learning centers, along with thematic, well thought-out lesson plans. The learning centers include art, manipulatives, writing, language arts, home living, blocks science, and sensorial. The educational period is from 9am-1pm five days a week (M-F).

Three’s (must be 3 years old by Sept 30): Children must be potty trained. Please refer to our toileting policies for more details. This is the age when children are asking all those curious questions of who, what, when, where and how. We are glad to see children explore and discover answers. We utilize: “Get Set for School: Readiness and Writing” Part 1, “The Creative Curriculum Comprehensive System“, and other resources that support development.

Pre-K/Four’s/Five’s (Must be 4 years old by Dec 31): We are excited to guide children in lessons and activities that will prepare them for kindergarten. We utilize: “Get Set for School: Readiness and Writing” Part 2, “Get Set for School: Numbers and Math”, “The Creative Curriculum Comprehensive System” and other resources that support development.

Transitional Kindergarten/5 years old (must be 5 years old by Apr 1): This class is specially designed for children who just miss the age of eligibility for kindergarten or for a child who needs an additional year prior to entering kindergarten. These children need the gift of time that is essential to learn more about friendships, assert independence, and absorb more skills needed for future success in school. We utilize: “Get Set for School: Readiness and Writing” Part 2, “Get Set for School: Numbers and Math”, “The Creative Curriculum Comprehensive System“, “WordTime” and other resources that support development.
