KICK START your child's education!

The intention of CapoKids Preschool is to give children a love for learning that will last them a lifetime. Children are given the opportunity to create, explore and grow through rich experiences that are based on their unique interests, strengths and learning styles.

Communication and teamwork are an integral part of the program. Children, teachers, and families will work together to determine the most
effective learning environments and materials. We want to encourage “life-long” learners in our program by providing on-going educational opportunities, materials, and research to our teachers and families. Our teachers will use The Creative Curriculum as a guide for developing their learning environments.

Materials and instruction are developmentally age-appropriate. Children will be exposed to both child-initiated and teacher directed activities throughout the day.

Daily schedules will provide the opportunity for children to work in individual, small and large group settings. Our teachers will celebrate each child’s successes and promote an “I can” attitude. Skills related to social and emotional growth as well as communication will be integrated into all interactions and activities throughout the day.
