Preschool

Our Preschool program is for children who are 3 by Aug. 31 of that current school year and must be potty-trained. We have 2 options for Preschool and both are terrific for setting your child up for the next level! We offer a 2-day (T/Th) and a 3-day (MWF) program. Our primary focus in Preschool is on the social/emotional development in kids in preparation for Pre-K. We adore seeing kids begin to use their words to express themselves, learn how to function appropriately in a group, creatively negotiate and problem-solve with their peers and to be so excited they want to run to class as fast as they can!

Pre-K (Pre-Kindergarten)

Pre-K is for children who are 4 by August 31 of that current school year.  Our classes are known for preparing kids well for the next step of kindergarten. We offer a 3-day (MWF) and a 5-day class, and both set kids up for success in kindergarten. Some of our primary goals in preparing kids for kindergarten is to help them find success in group-oriented learning; both large group and small group, transitioning smoothly from one activity to the next, interacting successfully with peers and experiencing joy in each day! Our curriculum is designed to stimulate your child’s imagination and stimulate the desire to learn by exploring through hands-on literacy and math readiness activities, process-art where purpose is the process not the product, curiosity building science, manipulatives to encourage cooperative play, literature, songs and movement that are sure to make everyone ‘bust a move!’

Kindergarten

Brand New! We now have a full day option!

We now have a half day and full day option! Our kindergarten is packed with lots of learning and fun. Our certificated teachers are experienced and are accountable to have their students meet the state standards and be ready for first grade. 

Both programs are rigorous programs that are geared to help kids that are ready for kindergarten (socially, emotionally and academically) to be prepared for first grade by June.  Students need to be able to function in group learning environments, work independently, be capable of taking directions from teachers and use appropriate communication skills.  We have a great student/teacher ratio and that helps us get kids ready for the next step. We are not equipped to provide one on one support as the norm.

The kindergarten curriculum is aligned with the WA State Common Core standards and is carefully crafted to meet the needs and interests of our students.  Our literacy program is based on Wonders (McGraw-Hill) and integrates social studies and science topics into each unit.  Because one single curriculum can’t meet every need, we supplement this curriculum with Nellie Edge’s “ABC Sign with Me” and authentic writing activities, and with David Matteson’s P-3 Writing Foundations.  Our math units integrate three research-based programs (Guided Math, Math for Love, and Counting Collections) to allow for a balanced, hands-on approach to mastering math skills.   Throughout the year, we will have several Storybook STEM weeks. These weeks integrate a beloved children’s story with science, engineering, and art.    Because healthy bodies and minds are just as important as academic skills, we take time to teach students about growth mindsets, positive affirmations, and have PE once per week.

Both our half day and full day programs will include the core subjects of reading (phonics and small group instruction), writing, math, PE, and free play.  The full day program will include an extra recess, lunch, and enrichment activities.  These student-centered activities will build on the social studies or science concepts that were already introduced during the core academic instruction time.

KATC prides itself on providing a safe, loving environment for kindergarten students to grow and learn!

Must be 5 years by Aug. 31st of the current school year
