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".
