General School Mission

"Future Kids preschool is intended to be an educational program, and not a day care center. Our goal is to stimulate learning at a developmentally appropriate level. While this may include some pre-reading and pre-math skill development, the focus will not be primarily in this area. Rather, emphasis will be placed on teaching school-readiness qualities, such as cooperation, sharing, listening skills, eye-hand coordination, large and small motor control, following directions, and manners. Once children have acquired these types of school-readiness skills, they are better able to make the most of each learning situation, and the transition to public school is neither traumatic nor difficult.
Our Program is designed to teach these skills and concepts through age-appropriate interaction with real world activities. For example, circle time music activities can teach listening skills, intellectual concepts, and large motor coordination all at the same time. Add the powerful concept of a child having great fun while doing this, and you have the ideal learning situation This is what furture kids preschool is all about."
