The Kindergarten Care Program is a complement to the school day, giving children a safe place to relax, be with friends, play games, and most importantly have fun.
Kindergarten Care is a wrap around program of care and enrichment for children who attend half-day kindergarten in Mt. Lebanon.
At Kindergarten Care the children will have a choice of activities, some planned around a theme, and some center activities that are always available. The activities, games and centers are arranged with the children's developmental level and expressed interests in mind. They include art, music, cooking, science, stories, dramatic play, board and card games, crafts, manipulative and building tools, and sports. There is time each day for outside play when the weather permits, or active indoor play. Field trips and special guests at the center are an integral part of the program. Nutritional snacks are provided at mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
The Kindergarten Care program is not a repetition or a continuation of the school's kindergarten program. It complements the kindergarten experience by providing opportunities for playtime and exploration of your child's own individual interests, as well as a chance to develop and practice age appropriate social skills. The children are encouraged to make choices and to help plan the activities.
