Foster City Preschool activities are age appropriate and take place in our 4 large classrooms. Children are placed in classrooms by age. When placing children in our different classrooms, we use the same cut-off date as the State of California school system.
We create a Daily Schedule so parents know what to expect each day. We have filled the classrooms with a variety of cognitive and physical learning activities. We also offer multi-cultural and ethnic programs like celebrating International Week and numerous ethnic festivals.
We emphasize social skills, such as following directions, taking turns, sharing and verbal communication. The children experience music, dancing, arts and crafts and out-door play. We offer an enriched program, emphasizing the sounds of different letters and writing skills.
We also have a large yard for all the children to play outdoors.
Your child will experience an enhanced math learning program and basic addition and subtraction skills. We teach our older children a reading program where children learn to blend sounds to form three and four letter words.
We also introduce them to the concept of homework. We send children home on Friday with a page or two of homework. We ask your child to return the homework the following Monday.
We offer Transitional Kindergarten curriculum for children who have missed the cut-off date to enter Kindergarten. Our Pre-Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten classes provide excellent preparation for the Bay Area's academically rigorous Kindergarten class.
Foster City Preschool is located in a secured facility within the Parkside Elementary School grounds. Our entrance is secured by a digital pass-code based locking system to ensure the safety of all the children.
