Kindergarten is a critical starting point in every child’s education. In part one of this series, we discussed several important foundational skills that your child will explore in kindergarten, including reading and math. In part two of this series, we’ll continue to discuss what your child will learn in kindergarten, so you have an understanding of what to expect from your child as they grow and develop.

Kindergarten Skill #3: Science

When you enroll your little one in a kindergarten class, you can expect them to dabble in science and the unique world around them. At Cross Timbers Preschool and Daycare in Owasso, we submerge our kindergarten students in simple science experiments involving a variety of things including plants, animals, weather and exploring the five senses. Your child will learn good health and nutrition habits with hands-on activities as well.

Kindergarten Skill #4: Social Studies

When your child enrolls in a kindergarten class, they will expand their knowledge of the world through a variety of social studies activities. At Cross Timbers Preschool and Daycare, we focus on introducing our kindergarten students to a variety of cultures and families so they understand the true meaning of a community.

Kindergarten Skill #5: Language & Literacy

A kindergarten class will help to grow your child’s understanding of words and sounds so they can get a head start on their early reading and speaking skills. Some specific skills your child may work on during the school year include:

  • Learning how to match letters to the sounds they make
  • Developing the ability to rhyme and create word families
  • Recognizing environmental print around them

At Cross Timbers Preschool and Daycare in Owasso, we offer a private kindergarten class with an accelerated curriculum so your child can explore new concepts and lead adventures with other children their age. Schedule a walkthrough of our educational facility today or give us a call to learn more!
