School Age

School Age Curriculum

Our premier program is available for school age children beginning at 5-12 years. In our program your school age child focus is problem solving and coping skills.

It is very important that school age children begin to exhibit responsibility and accountability for homework, self-control and social conflicts that will arise as they progress in age. During this time we will continue to build on the current Ohio Standards and Guidelines and assist them through projects to grow into responsible citizens.

The school age program will be designed so that students can get homework done and unwind exploring Math and Science, Reading and Literacy, Social Studies and Technology, Music, Movement and Art in creative ways, Yoga and Expressive Arts using individual, small and large group projects.

Kindergarten to School Age Transition

After several years spent in the same facility with the same friends and teachers, there will be quite a change in your kindergartener’s environment! We will start a process of encouragement and excitement at the center.

What To Know:

  • Reinforcement at home, as we provide a sense of confidence for your child – celebrate the successes
  • We ask important questions to open up conversation because adjusting to school may take time
  • Set aside time each day to share in your child’s successes and challenges
  • If the transition is uncomfortable, we can collaborate with the school to develop a care plan

FAQs

The most important thing for parents to do is to communicate expectations to the teacher regarding homework. As a teaching team, we will support the method that you have developed at home. We do typically provide a snack break before beginning homework to allow their bodies and minds to settle down.
