New private kindergarten program for Rowan County
Partners In Learning Child Development and Family Resource Center has announced the development of a new kindergarten program in Rowan County.
The nationally accredited, five-star licensed child care center celebrates its 17-year anniversary this year and now looks to expand its services to provide a private kindergarten class starting in August.
“We believe by offering a stimulating, student-centered, hands-on curriculum where the focus is on each individuals process of learning and not just the product, children thrive in their natural love for learning,” said Executive Director Norma Honeycutt in a press release. “We believe each child is gifted and should be offered a nurturing and encouraging classroom environment where each has the opportunity to learn and to be challenged at their own pace.”
The kindergarten class will have space for 12 students and one teacher. Honeycutt said there will be a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills.
“The curriculum is a comprehensive approach that challenges children and supports all areas of development,” she said in the press release. “The curriculum builds off the child’s knowledge and skill base, learning style, and interests.”
The curriculum will extend from the planned child-choice learning environment utilizing the common core standards and incorporates Second Step Curriculum, Zoo Phonics, More Than Mudpies Nutrition Curriculum, and Special Olympics Young Athletes Physical Education Curriculum.
Partners In Learning is now enrolling students for the program. For more information visit epartnersinlearning.org.
