Preschool: More Time for Five
Give your child the gift of time. Prepare them to flourish in kindergarten!
Villa Academy’s More Time for Five isn’t a repeat of younger preschool years, but was developed specifically for the five-year old student.
More Time For Five looks like play, but deep learning occurs–we call it “play with a purpose.” Our program incorporates:
- Thoughtfully-planned lessons that help children develop their sense of self and sense of responsibility for choices made.
- The social, emotional, academic, and physical needs of young learners not ready for kindergarten.
- Exploration of topics in greater depth with more dialogue and discussion.
- A focus on kindergarten success skills: fine motor, gross motor and pre-literacy.
More Time For Five is designed for children who:
- are eligible for kindergarten, but would benefit from more time and additional preparation
- miss the Washington state cutoff date for kindergarten
- may have attended pre-K classes elsewhere
