KINDERPREP™: LEARNING TO LOVE LEARNING
According to a 2007 study, by the University of California, Irvine, children who enter kindergarten with an understanding of basic math concepts, were more likely to be succeeding in math and reading by grade 5. In addition, researchers say a strong grasp of concepts in math and sciences are critical to long-term student success. Students are able to be more successful in higher-level math and science courses.
Academic Achievers created KinderPrep in 2009, a program for pre-school through Kinder ages, where credentialed teachers and tutors deliver Project Based Learning at client homes, that is STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) based. The success of this program incorporates math, science, early literacy activities that help children to function in ‘three dimensions’. Our KinderPrep program fosters problem solving and increases awareness of the world around them. Knowing that children are fascinated with how things work, has been infused throughout the KinderPrep curriculum, giving children the chance to create, design, explore and imagine in fun ways at their home or at Academic Achiever KinderPrep Camps

Academic Achievers' KinderPrep program was built around the Common CORE Curriculum and the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) framework. At one-on-one KinderPrep or KinderPrep Camp, your 4 or 5 year old will learn academic basics as well as higher order thinking. Your child will learn phonics, basic math, outdoor science experiments, small and large motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and so much more. Last year we learned sign language and beginning Chinese!
There is no better time to foster your child's academic success than right now! Our popular KINDERPREP program is designed to ensure that your child starts school confident and secure. Your child will work one-on-one with Master's level Child Development educators and credentialed kindergarten teachers, who will design an individually customized program for your child—whether for kindergarten evaluation, the transition from pre-school to kindergarten, or kindergarten enrichment. We begin by doing a thorough assessment of your child in the first session, so that we can build an individual enrichment program exclusively for your young learner. Through guided play, we introduce reading, writing, math and science, encouraging curiosity every step of the way. "Learning to Love Learning" is a gift that will last a lifetime.
