Dinosaur Class – Ages 4-5

Program Overview, 4 – day class

At SPCNS, the “Dinos” class focuses on further development of socialization skills. Enhancing and additional structuring of school environment functioning and behavior.

More concrete exposure and some practice of various (appropriate) pre-K concepts.  This is not to completely “master” all skills, but to build a basis, a familiarity for later “cementing” in kindergarten.

Developmentally appropriate growth for each child, encouraging accomplishments and growth in weaker areas.  All activities are done through storytelling, science experiments, puppetry, music & movement, singing, and various play experience.
