Big Orange Dragons

For children 4.5 to 5.5 years of age.

 

The Big “Orange” Dragons  classroom has vibrant orange accents which represents warmth and energy. It can stimulate activity and encourage socialization, which helps promote a sense of enthusiasm that will give them confidence when entering Kindergarten.

 

Children at this age experience a tremendous amount of physical, emotional and cognitive growth.

 

Our lessons are fun, interactive and emergent in the areas of literature, phonics, math, music, art, science and sensory motor skills.  We encourage your child to explore and think outside the box, helping to cultivate a love for wonder and learning. We also promise to have a ton of fun! We want our Camelot Kids to enter Kindergarten with self confidence, to be fearless and excited about the whole idea of school and learning.  Kids leave Camelot as "Confident Learners".
