Students in the Caterpillar Classes are between the ages of 1 and 2.5 at the start of the school year. Experienced and nurturing staff ensure that the creative, hands-on curriculum is enjoyed by all. Caterpillars love to play actively outside in our numerous play spaces, including the Caterpillar Playground, built specifically for their age group. Communication comes home on a daily basis from staff in the form of Caterpillar Chatters. Half day Caterpillars must be 1 year 10 months by August 31st of the school year. Full day Caterpillars must be 1 year old and walking to begin.
Our appropriately designed curriculum is tailored to fit the needs of the preschool child. Children learn by actively participating in daily activities to explore, create, and problem-solve to help prepare them for Kindergarten.
Junior Kindergarten is designed for the child who just misses the Kindergarten cut-off date or is not quite ready for Kindergarten. Students in this program generally turn 5 June through December of the upcoming school year. We offer both full day (any hours between 7 AM and 6 PM) or half day mornings (Monday – Friday with a “Lunch Bunch” option). This program offers an advanced curriculum. Many of these students have already completed a 4-year-old program.
Breezy Point’s Private Academic Kindergarten is open to students who are 5.0 by September 1st of the upcoming school year. Reading is taught using the “SUPERKIDS” program. This is a balanced literacy curriculum which helps to make reading and writing meaningful. Mathematics is taught with the help of the Pearson enVision Math Program. This program uses “hands-on” manipulatives and encourages cooperative learning. The Kindergarten classroom is equipped with a Promethean Smartboard to promote interactive learning. Breezy Point Kindergarten offers a low teacher to student ratio of 1:10.
Breezy Point teachers play an active role in a student’s education and development. Classroom teachers hold Bachelor, Associate, or C.D.A. degrees in Early Childhood or Elementary Education. Staff members participate in ongoing professional development to keep current in the early childhood education field. Our staff is certified in Child C.P.R. and First Aid. In an industry where staff turnover is the norm, we are proud of the longevity of our staff, many of whom have been with us for over twenty years.
