Thursday, September 1st, 2022 - Wednesday, May 31st, 2023
As a creative institution, our mission and conception are to facilitate a child's exciting mind in a way that builds solid confidence and brings true joy to learning. Our extended, creativity-driven curriculum encourages a desire for learning, a drive for achievement, and a foundation for success.
We create a loving and caring environment designed to help every child use their strengths to reach their full potential.
Everything we do is aimed at supporting the child as a whole. Our safe, loving, and developmentally friendly program promotes active learning.
The pursuit of excellence
Family respect and support
Respect and distinction of individuality
Open and productive communication
Creative and responsible resources
Our dedicated teachers are carefully selected and highly qualified. Our faculty love their students and find joy in helping them learn and grow. Through careful observation and recording, our teachers note learning patterns and styles so they can adjust and individualize their approaches to meet each child's needs. We also provide regular extensive, ongoing training on learning strategies for this program.
Moreover, because parents are a critical component of learning success, we see parents as partners in their children's education. Our teachers' observations and children's progress are regularly reported to parents.
We love this exciting time of life! The 3-, 4- or 5-year-old student is blasting with imaginative ideas that can hardly be contained. At FDS Pre-K Program "Rising Stars," we guide your child to use their imagination to solve problems, learn concepts, play, build motor skills, and more. Our students will develop lasting independence and confidence that can build success in all areas of life.
We focus on the creative arts. We will engage our students to use art, music, social studies, dance and gymnastics, science, math, reading and writing, and more, including a hefty dose of imagination. With this power, both the right and left hemispheres of our students’ brains are developing, which builds knowledge while teaching essential skills for success and growth.
Through an exciting and fun hands-on curriculum at FDS Pre-K Program "Rising Stars," your child will develop a love of learning and will have the skills to embrace the challenge.
We are a unique program that focuses on eight curriculum areas every day. We do not leave dance and science for one day a week and make music and art on a single day - our students are engaged in all eight of our directions every day. This allows our students to absorb the concepts and apply them in different ways entirely to all areas of life.
