At The Blue Elephant, our mission is to help every member of our learning community grow and develop into a mature, well-rounded student with an innate love of learning. As a leading private preschool and early childhood education center serving the Frisco, TX area, we’re proud to take a holistic approach to education, using a science-based curriculum that combines traditional academics with arts education and other supplementary programs to make learning truly fun. But before our little learners can excel in our Frisco private preschool and beyond, we need to prepare them for school – and it all starts with our School Readiness program.
We split our school readiness students into two groups to best facilitate their development and success: Young 3s and Older 3s. Each school readiness room has a distinct theme, with Young 3s enjoying the Indoor Circus and Older 3s enjoying the Outdoor Circus, while Pre-K students enjoy an ocean-themed room. Our School Readiness program provides Pre-K students stepping stones to prepare for Kindergarten, ensuring they’re set up for success in Kindergarten and beyond.
In addition to social skills, our School Readiness program helps our little learners develop the academic skills they’ll need for success. Our expert early childhood educators use a wide range of math and literacy aids to enhance our science-based preschool curriculum, including the renowned tools of Frog Street and Handwriting Without Tears. In addition, we teach our students important character concepts with activities from Adventures with Travis & Presley. Our character development program teaches our private preschool students 8 critical skills that are important for success in school and in life:
Children thrive on structure, and our School Readiness preschool program uses reliable, structured schedules and repeated procedures to help all of our students feel comfortable. Each activity serves a purpose in our students’ day, so whether we’re practicing handwriting or taking a snack break, we always work with the intention of preparing our students to thrive in Kindergarten and beyond.
But in addition to structure, we also teach our students age-appropriate independence to build confidence and identity. Our private Pre-K students practice walking themselves to class after the first semester, and they quickly learn where to place belongings upon entering the room. Combined with social and academic skill development, this helps our students develop self-confidence and grow into self-assured, well-prepared students ready to excel in Kindergarten!
Our School Readiness program is an excellent way to prepare any child for success.
