What can you expect at Primrose’s private Kindergarten program?
Low student/teacher ratio: 1:14
Literacy Development: Primrose® has selected a reading series that supports the Balanced Learning® approach to language and literacy learning.
Healthy Balanced Menus: Healthy nutrition not only boosts energy but can elevate a child’s mood and thinking skills during a crucial development stage. Our onsite Chef follows a balanced menu plan that includes all of your child’s meals and snacks throughout the day.
Math Development: The Math Expressions Math Program in our Kindergarten program incorporates the best practices of both traditional and reform mathematics curricula.
Mucho Mundo® Spanish: This Spanish class takes place 5 days a week. Children are enthusiastic about learning theme-related Spanish vocabulary and conversational phrases that correspond to the Primrose weekly Unit of Learning themes.
Thumbs Up! – Physical Health & Development and Outdoor Play: Children have two 30 minutes slots in the daily schedule which they get to go outside. During this time our teachers conduct indoor and outdoor activities and play experiences that help children practice and gain an increased awareness of their physical abilities. In addition to organized activities, our playgrounds provide opportunities for physical challenge and to safely take risks.
Happy Hearts Character Development: This program focuses on the development of good character traits and helps children begin to internalize what it takes to be a good person.
Rhythm & Notes® with Music from The Music Class: Children have a set time for music in their daily schedule, so this takes places five times a week.
Technology in the Classroom: The Computer Center provides opportunities for children to develop confidence in their ability to use a computer, problem solve, and develop literacy skills and concepts.
Parent partnerships: At Primrose, we believe our partnerships with each parent is vital. You will also receive digital “daily reports” of exactly what your child learned that day, pictures throughout the day, what they ate that day, etc.
We are so thankful to have two kiddos at Primrose School of Simpsonville Five Forks! We could not ask for a better school to send our children. The staff is amazing and we truly feel at home here. Everyone goes above and beyond! Always exceeding expectations!
