Everyday at YKA!
Everyday while your child is at Yardley Kids Academy, he/she will participate in the following educational areas:
Math instruction takes place in all of our classrooms. We begin with basic colors, number and size recognition, as well as, one-to-one correspondence (that one object corresponds to one number), and counting. In the KinderAcademy we progress to more difficult concepts in spatial relationships, measurement, patterns, graphing, telling time and complex operations like addition and subtraction.
Language Arts instruction takes place in all of our classrooms. In our younger classes, we begin with basic letters recognition and sounds. In the KinderAcademy we progress to placing these sounds together to form words, forming letters, recognition of site words and the building blocks of reading.
Science exploration is a fun and creative area for our children. We include sensory activities for all children beginning with pudding play, splash play and play dough. The KinderAcademy Science instruction includes states of matter, our solar system, and static electricity. We conduct experiments with the children throughout the week, utilizing the scientific method and finally reviewing our data to draw conclusions.
Social Studies is the understanding of the world around us! Children will focus on their community: families, friends, jobs people have, and their relationship to their peers and school. After understanding this in terms of ourselves, we progress to examining other cultures throughout the world. We will focus on significant people in history such as, Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. This curriculum will tie into the Culinary Kids Program as we share family traditions and heritage.
Foreign Langauge instruction in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Chinese and Japanese. Children learn basic words and expressions through repetition and song.
Music and movement activities take place everyday! These activities range from free dance parties, following directions through movement or relaxing through yoga instruction.
As an special activity, your child will participate in Library, Computers, and a Readers Theatre Program. All of these components are presented in a stress- free manner that allow children to succeed.
Baby Can Read and Baby Sign programs are implemented in our Infant and Toddler classes. These programs are designed to enhance communication skills for children up to 3 years old.
