What We Do All Day?

The school day is filled with stimulating and exciting learning opportunities for each student. Children learn best when they are having fun and here at Kids Express, our kids learn a lot! Each day our teachers employ a curriculum-based lesson plan that teaches the children the tools that they need to enter Kindergarten successfully.

Below, there are a few examples of a daily schedule. As you can see, your child has structured and unstructured time in the classroom. Your child will have an opportunity to sit down, follow instructions, complete a project, and learn how to function in a classroom. Your child will also have an opportunity to learn through exploration, experimentation, and socialization.
