Hawthorne Daycare’s Kindergarten Program

Both of our Junior and Senior Kindergarten programs continue to stimulate and promote development and independence while supporting and encouraging early school experiences. We continue to utilize play as a vehicle for exploration and learning while incorporating the expansion and maintenance of developing friendships, evolving independence and self-help skills.

Individualized Care

The kindergarten children are eager to be “helpers”, enthusiastically and co-operatively assisting other children and staff with such tasks as decorating the daycare rooms with children’s artwork and helping to keep the room tidy. Children can be observed engaged in music activities; developing language through conversation, early reading, and printing; playing with manipulative learning toys, construction toys, and puzzles; as well as painting, drawing, dramatic play, and many other productive ventures. An example of encouraging the children’s growing empowerment was illustrated in the senior kindergarten group’s incorporation of their own child-based and highly successful “peacemaker” system which children regularly used when resolving conflicts or other peer issues.
