Our programs at Shining Light begin for children as young as 2 years old and last until age 5 for parents who may want to consider alternative options to Transitional Kindergarten. For our younger children diapers and pull-ups are okay until they’re trained.
We’re pleased to offer small classes with 10 to 12 children per class and a ratio of 1 to 6 per adult (including the Co-op). Our curriculum is built to equip children to succeed in Kindergarten by fostering readiness skills through Zoo Phonics and Handwriting without Tears.
A sample of the activities and highlights of our program include:
An integral part of our program is the parent co-op, which involves serving as a classroom helper in your child’s class approximately once a month. In order to make scheduling as easy as possible, parents have the opportunity to sign-up for their Co-op Days on the first day of school. Parents also receive a Class List and have the chance to trade/change these days throughout the school year.
