Kindergarten Preparatory Program

Our “K-Prep” program is designed to provide an extended structured academic setting for children scheduled for their upcoming Fall entry into Kindergarten within the public or private school system. Children in Pal’s K-prep program are introduced to a more formal academic structure for a longer portion of their day. Reading, writing, math, science, social studies, health science, and physical education activities and concepts that were introduced in the pre-school program progress in complexity. Structure play also continues in our K-Prep program as the children continue to learn the value of socialization skills and build friendships. Our goal is to prepare the children in Pal’s K-Prep program for entry into the public or private school sectors with the academic and social skills they need to succeed.

Make Winter Safe for Kids!!!

  • Winter is an exciting time for kids. It brings great outdoor activities, such as snowboarding and skating, but also cold weather, ice and snow, which can present a danger to children. But that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the winter. Here are some winter safety tips for both parents and children.
    • Never allow children to play outside alone. Establish a buddy system with one or more of their friends and have them look out for one another. Children younger than eight years of age should always be well supervised outside.
    • Check from time to time to make sure children are warm and dry.
    • Have younger children take frequent breaks to come inside for a warm drink.
    • Never send children outside in extreme weather conditions such as snowstorms.
    • Keep children indoors if the temperature falls below 0°F, or if the wind chill is 0°F or greater.
