Our Preschool Curriculum

Prepare your child for elementary school and pre-k success with Kids Konnect's tailored preschool curriculum. Our comprehensive program of fun and learning  introduces your child to writing, language, math, science and social studies to ensure your child is ready for school.
STEM and STEAM subjects are in high demand in the modern world and research shows that it's never too early for your child to explore these essential subjects of science, technology, engineering, art and math. At Kids Konnect, we're committed to introducing your preschooler to STEM learning through fun activities, lessons and games.

Every child at Kids Konnect is encouraged to think in a manner that will extend learning from rote memorization to the true understanding of ideas and concepts. Our preschool experience also focuses on learning to be a good friend, participating in games with rules and inclusivity of different abilities.

Play-based learning in preschool

Every day at our preschool is structured to ensure your child is ready for school and the wider world as outlined by the California Department of Education. Our days are never boring and we encourage interaction with teachers and peers alongside play-based learning.

STEM subjects are integrated from day one to ensure your child gets a head start with their science, technology, engineering and math abilities.

With the inclusion of free choice during our afternoon activities, children develop the ability to make decisions and learn how to adapt to different social environments. Our regular music and movement sessions puts a smile on every kids face and satisfies our teachers urges to dance!

Play that is initiated and directed by children is vital in allowing them to make sense of the world and to develop physically, socially and cognitively. It's the very foundation of learning.

Play-based learning is an exciting and stimulating program that also allows preschoolers to:

  • Express and regulate their thoughts and feelings
  • Understand themselves and others
  • Problem solve, and overcome challenges (STEM based learning)
  • Develop competence and self-confidence

"What children gain from a quality preschool program is communication skills with adults and peers, self-confidence, enthusiasm for learning, and resilience. When the social-emotional foundation is developed, the academic learning can ensue. Kids Konnect understands how important a holistic approach to learning is and that is why our preschool program is so successful. I can't wait to meet you!"

Safe and wholesome food from 'gate to plate'

Lunch and snack are prepared daily in the Kids Konnect kitchen. We offer a variety of foods so children can try different things. We get our food from our school garden where we grow kale, carrots, onions and other seasonal vegetables. The kids are more willing to try different foods when they participate in growing them. We buy the bulk of our organic foods from Costco and Safeway.

Hygiene

A clean classroom and kitchen are the first step to preventing the spread of germs and pathogens at school. To that end, we incorporate a cleaning schedule for staff to follow daily. From sanitizing toys to wiping down sinks after every use, we make cleaning a priority for the protection of our staff and children.
