Big Red Dragons
For children 4-5 years of age.
The Big “Red” Dragons classroom has red accents which are the universal symbol of love. Red is recognized as a stimulant and motivates early learning. This color is also associated with enthusiasm and energy and helps in increasing confidence. It helps promote excitement and the desire to explore new things with speed and strength.
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".

Ms Rita is of Armenian origin, born in Abadan-Iran. She had a wonderful childhood, growing in a very diverse society. This exposure made it easy for her to travel and feel right at home wherever she decided to set home. She studied nursing in London-UK. There she met her husband, they moved to Singapore, where she raised her family and learned to appreciate Asian cuisine and multitude of Asian fruits, herbs and remedies.
Thirteen years ago Ms Rita moved to California to spend time with her side of the family. A non-profit organization offered her a teaching opportunity at their pre-school. She had been teaching English as second language to Japanese expatriates for seventeen years, in Singapore. So teaching was her trade, and working with young children her passion. She took up the offer and worked at the institute for seven years. Meanwhile she acquired local credentials and permits as preschool teacher.
Ms Rita loves to spend time with extended family and friends. She constantly has them visiting her from near and far. She calls herself ‘A citizen of the world’; which is so appropriate, as she has lived and has family in almost every continent.
