Kindergarten Readiness

4 years to 5 years

Here at Columbia Children's Center we provide a nurturing, caring and safe environment for your child to learn and grow through age-appropriate experiences. We are very proud of our Kindergarten Readiness Program. Our goal is to enhance your child's confidence and prepare them for a successful school experience. We believe that warmth is a vital element for a growing child. Our curriculum is designed so that your child will discover that learning is fun while making new friends and building strong relationships with their teachers who deeply care about their happiness and education.

We have a variety of Centers in our classroom. Your child will be involved in hands-on and interactive activities to develop their emotional, social, and academic skills. They will be provided many opportunities to explore, communicate and create in a warm and loving atmosphere.
