WELCOME TO our preschool FAMILY!
We take great pride in our preschool! We know you'll love it!
I can't wait to meet you soon! Let me tell you a little about myself.

I am married, my husband and I have several children, and are blessed with a  small handful of grandkids.  I have had a childcare/preschool business for over 25 years. When I'm not teaching, my family and I enjoy fishing, boating, camping, riding ATV's, traveling, and exploring. 

My favorite part of caring for kids has always been teaching, I absolutely love everything about it! I love seeing the excitement each day as the students arrive! It's so magical for them! I truly feel that teaching and creating an inviting environment is my calling in life, and I can't wait to teach your little one. I can't wait to meet you!
you'll love our fun classes!
From preschool, kinder pep, and summer camp, we have something everyone in your family can enjoy!
AK Kids Preschool provides a delightful mix of academic and play-based learning. Our classes will help your child to make friends, get socialized, and be ready for Kindergarten. We focus on a "whole child" philosophy and help develop your child's social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills through centers and academic time. 
Let us help develop your child's foundation for life-long learning. We can’t wait for your child to join our preschool!

each day is full of fun & learning!
30 min. – Welcome, Table/Center 
We are so excited for everyone to arrive! We will rotate between center time and fun table time activities. This is a fun social time for the kids while we are warming up to our morning. 

We gather together at the circle rug to work on our cognitive, social, language, and gross motor skills with our sharing time, calendar, weather, job helpers and music & movement. 
15 min. – Phonics time  
 We use the Zoo Phonics program to teach students the alphabet and letter sounds. This unique program teaches phonemic awareness through a whole brain approach--hearing (audio), seeing (visual), speaking (oral), moving (kinesthetic), and touching (tactile).  You will be amazed how quickly your child knows their letters and sounds!
15 min. – Snack Time
We love working on our cognitive, social, language, and fine motor skills as we pour, measure, sort, count, chat, and enjoy eating together.

30 min. – Center Time /  30 min. Learning Time
Center time
Often known as “Free Play” or “Play Time,” our many centers include Dramatic Play, Sensory, Art, Building, Literacy, Writing, and Science. We work on social, emotional, and language skills such as using our words, taking turns, being patient, negotiating conflicts, etc. In addition, our teacher brings over small groups or works 1-on-1 with building cognitive skills (colors, shapes, letters, sounds, numbers, counting, math/reading for older kids) based on each child’s level. 

This is our "academic time". Students will learn to write their first and last names, recognize colors and shapes, cut and glue, write letters and numbers, recognize letters, know the letter sounds, count to 20 or more, have awareness for others, understand how to use books, rhyme, and basic comprehension.

30 min. Art & Craft time / 30 min.- Outside time
This is an exciting time for the kids. We have a craft or art everyday.  This is a time to learn to cut, glue, follow simple directions, and to just create.

Outside Time
Our playground areas include slides, sand boxes, balls, trucks, playhouse, and more! You’ll think we’re just playing, but we’re actually working on our social, emotional, language, and gross motor skills as we run, jump, climb, swing, and create games. 
Every day is an adventure in learning! From our inviting, beautiful, and engaging classrooms to our exciting hands-on activities, your child will develop a love for life-long learning!
We Focus On The "Whole Child!"
At AK Kids Preschool, we follow a “whole child” philosophy where we partner with you to improve your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills. Your child will learn to socialize, make friends, develop social and emotional skills, and be more than ready for kindergarten! In fact, kindergarten teachers LOVE our students so much because they're such great learners!
Developmentally Appropriate!
Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals. 

We also incorporate Zoo Phonics and Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum. 
We Love Questions!
We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.

In fact, one of the best ways we can teach is to ask THEM questions. "What are you creating?" "How does it work?" "Tell me about what you drew." etc.

We Partner With You!
We assess our students two times each year to discover what areas they're strong in, and what areas still need more work. 

We keep you in the loop on what we're working on, and we also let you know exactly how your child is doing during our mid-year parent teacher conferences each year.
Process... Not Product!
We love to get messy, and the best time for that is at art time! We focus on the process, not the end product, and use a wide variety of art materials. 

Children learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to explore and play without rules of what art "should" look like at the end.
Fun Themes & Centers!
Every few weeks, we dive deep into a new, exciting theme based on themes that appeal to the children, the weather, holidays, or whatever the children are dying to learn more about. 

We change out our centers and materials to reflect the new theme. Our classroom is always changing, and you never know what exciting things we'll add next week!
We have 30+ 5-star reviews on Facebook and Google. These reviews are a testament to the phenomenal community we all work so hard to build at AK Kids Preschool. Thank you for your support!
