Kindergarten is the last year of preschool. Vito will be entering kindergarten this coming June (2014). Kindergarten programs emphasize natural expression, social interaction, creative play, and provide children with an academic foundation for first grade. It is an exciting learning environment for all children to learn and grow.
The kindergarten stundets can learn about many things. They are typically four or five years old. In class, they are usualy introduced to the alphabet, numbers, and colors. They study their bodies, families, and communities. They listen to stories read aloud, make art projects, articipate in skits and dramatic productions, and learn about holidays, plants, animals, and other topics in science or social studies.
Some kindergartens also teach introductory reading and mathematical basic skills. Kindergartens strive to offer children a foundation for the development of self-confidence, motivation, cognition (the process of knowing), and social skills.
