Our NYC Kids Camp program for 4's & 5's is specifically designed for children entering Pre-K or Kindergarten in the fall. Children have the opportunity to build classroom skills in a positive and supportive environment within a small group setting. We customize the program for each child to create a thoughtful sensitive environment, children can feel secure and become engaged and motivated learners. The individual needs of each child are valued that result in the achievement of developmental milestones including:
Social and emotional skills such as positive self-identity, sense of competence, empathy, verbal and non-verbal communication, building relationships between children and adults, playing with others, etc.
Communication and language skills such as listening and responding, nonverbal and two-way communication, pre-literacy skills through picture books, etc.
Physical skills such as moving parts of the body and the whole body, using objects, spacial awareness, coordination and balance, etc.
Cognitive skills such as exploration, naming objects, early maths skills, basic skills (shapes, colors, size comparison, etc.), cause and effect, time intervals, etc.
