The Children’s Center of Stone Oak recognizes that preparing your child for the challenges that await them in Kindergarten is paramount at this vital stage in their life. Our Kinder Readiness program is designed using the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills) curriculum which is currently used by NEISD and NSISD.
Our Kinder Readiness program supports the belief that through effective teaching practices and opportunities for child discovery through play, a child’s intellectual and social development can grow significantly, both of which are critical to the future academic and social successes.
Our TEKS based curriculum will provide a challenging but achievable curriculum which will actively engage your child in thinking, reasoning, and communicating with others. The TEKS-based curriculum focuses on 11 different areas of social, emotional, and academic learning which includes the following: health education, language/communication, emergent literacy/reading, emergent literacy/writing, mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts/music, physical development, technology and theater. The lessons and skills your child is going to learn will actively engage them in thinking, reasoning, and communication with others.
In language arts, your child’s curriculum will build upon their phonics skills, sharpen their handwriting, and begin the process of learning to read. In math, your child will build on their number recognition and value through grouping, sorting, and counting. Your child will also begin to learn addition and subtraction skills. Our science centers will allow your child to explore how things work through hands-on sensory lessons.
Physically, our caregivers will work with your child to refine overall coordination, emphasizing gross motor skills. Your child has the opportunity to run, jump, swing, slide, and bike in our large outdoor playground. These types of activities will help develop their gross motor skills in a fun and exciting environment.
The grand finale of your child’s time in our Kinder Readiness program is a cap and gown graduation ceremony. You will be amazed at how much your child has learned throughout their time with us at The Children’s Center of Stone Oak. We’re always so proud of our graduates and we know you will be too.
