Robins (4.5 – kindergarten)
The PRE–K ROBINS class is especially designed for children who are very close to, or already, five years old and who possess strong social skills and a keen enthusiasm for learning. This advanced program, for the older preschool child, will challenge children with an emergent, developmentally appropriate “hands on” curriculum. Science, math, art and literature will be emphasized while at the same time preparing the children for a successful and easy transition to elementary school.
Many children at this age are showing interest in reading and writing. The children are given many opportunities daily to build their reading and writing knowledge and skills in fun, developmentally appropriate activities.
The ROBINS class meets from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. There are 2, 3, 4 or 5 day options. Before and after care is also available for students in the Robins class.
Once a week the ROBINS participate in a gymnastics class at Naydenov Gymnastics Center. The monthly tuition covers the cost of the class. The children end their year with an informal presentation to show off to their parents the skills they have learned.
As with all of our classes, we encourage parents to be involved in their child’s educational experience. Parents are always welcome in the classroom and have many opportunities to volunteer on a regular basis or for special events.

Being an educator, I knew the experience I wanted for my daughter and was not finding it, until I came to KIDSPACE. You brought me such relief and hope. Thank you for all the wonderful teaching opportunities you have provided. She has grown and blossomed and loves “preschool.” Thank you also for all the love and support you have given me, as a parent, over the past three years. – Jenna
