SKILLS & CONCEPTS

WHY OUR PRIVATE KINDERGARTEN and First Grade?
Our Kindergarten program provides the strongest foundation attainable for your child’s education. Our small class instruction guarantees your child will receive the individual attention he/she deserves, and may require. Your child will learn to work independently and confidently in both large and small groups. Our “family like” classroom environment will strengthen their self-confidence, and realize their full learning potential, preparing for their successful transition to First Grade.  With our addition of First Grade, that transition has never been easier..


Our program stimulates growth in all aspects of your child’s development. Kids’ Stuff curriculum incorporates the Florida State Learning Standards as set forth by the Florida State Board of Education, as well as our own proven traditional teaching techniques. Our robust curriculum is enhanced by a unique
Spanish Immersion Program and technology resources in the classroom. Your child will also participate in the following specialized inter-curricular programs: Physical Education & Nutrition, Music Education, Technology Education, and Art. 


Kids’ Stuff Private School program delivers some of  the same concepts and standards as our surrounding public schools, but is tailored to the socialization and development of the whole child. The opportunity to eliminate the stresses and demands of a much larger elementary school atmosphere allows children to be more engaged, and benefit from the importance of socializing and building confidence in all areas of their personality. Our classroom experience is staged in a small, uncomplicated, and nurturing learning environment that affords our students the extra time necessary to become well-rounded confident first graders or second graders who are very ready and excited for their new experience beyond Kids' Stuff.


Green Apple Accredited

Kids’ Stuff is a GAACS-Accredited Private School. GAACS (Green Apple Accreditation of Children's Services),is the most unique early childhood accrediting program who encourages parents, staff, program management and the community to work together to reach for a higher level of quality, which ultimately 
benefits our children and their future. Accreditations helps parents locate high quality programs, and recognizes deserving programs that share beliefs and choose to set themselves apart from the rest. For additional information on GAACS standards and practices, please visit  www.gaacs.org.




Spanish Immersion

Early foreign language exposure increases listening ability, memory, creativity, and critical thinking skills, strengthening the overall learning experience. In addition to 30-45 minutes weekly of Spanish instruction, our unique Spanish Immersion Program exposes your child to the written and spoken Spanish language throughout the entire day. This subtle experience broadens their understanding of the language and makes their daily Spanish tutoring a very rich experience. 

 

Digital Education

Digital Education is introduced during Literacy Center rotations via a software program created to enhance literacy skills at Leveled Instruction. This is also incorporated into our Spanish Immersion Program. 


LITTLE TECHS

Little Techs is a weekly  program that exposes your child to an enriched curriculum through the use of iPads. Each child is challenged by leveled work through concepts in math, geography, literacy, and science. Research shows that students in technology-rich environments experience positive effects on achievement in all major subject areas. In addition, students’ attitudes toward learning, and their own self-concept, improve consistently when technology is used for instruction. The Little Techs program enhances the age-appropriate progress of students in attaining the state-adopted performance standards, and helps prepare students for the following grade level based on Common Core & Florida State Standards.
