Assembly Time:
Community awareness, Self-help skills, Social and Emotional Development

Your child’s daily Assembly, or group time, offers rich experiences with the purpose of building their educational foundation and sharpening their social skills. Assembly is the time when teachers help prepare children for a group kindergarten school setting. AKA Kindergarteners are active members of their classrooms, encouraged to voice their thoughts and ideas. They learn the essential skills to Cooperate, negotiate, and problem solve with peers. They are encouraged to make personal choices during their day.  Participation in group Assembly prepares your child for their elementary school years as well as build a strong foundation for future learning! 

Learning Time:
Math, Science, Literacy

Learning Time at AKA, is the time when educational activities are presented in a manner that will excite and engage your child.  Children seek out learning because it is offered and presented in a manner children relate to and understand. Tangible hands-on materials build a concrete understanding of all educational concepts. Math concepts include such ideas as logical thinking, patterns and numbers.  Our comprehensive literacy program includes reading, writing and telling stories.  Science is included in all aspects of the day and includes concepts like making observations and predictions.  During learning time children are allowed to work individually, in small group, or large group. Chicago Children are free to choose their work but encouraged and challenged by the teachers based on their individual skills. Your child will amaze you with their knowledge of math, science, literacy and more.  AKA prekindergartener's leave prepared for school with a strong educational foundation.

Writing is an essential fine motor skill. By now your prekindergarten child has fine-tuning their writing skills.
