"Children are born naturalists. They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them."

--The Audubon Nature Preschool

TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN 4 & 5 YEARS OLD

The Kindergarten cut off date in NC (regulated by the NC Department of Education) is August 31st. A child must turn 5 years old before August 31st in order to attend a public school kindergarten in North Carolina. HSCLC has prepared a wonderful, final pre-school option for 'almost' five's who fall into this category.

The Transitional Kindergarten (TK ) area of the Hot Springs Community Preschool is a lively, interactive environment for our four and five-year-olds. The program promotes positive socialization and hands-on learning experiences with a focus on emergent literacy through aesthetic, physical, and cognitive domains of learning. Integrating with the 3 - 5 year olds, then breaking off for small group activities with our rising 4's, we provide plenty of open times for learning through play and meaningful, developmentally appropriate learning experiences. We keep a small class size of 10 students for plenty of 1:1 attention, yet big enough for group games and practicing partner’s activities. We have proof that our strategy works! HSCLC TK Students are performing far above their peers at the Kindergarten screenings, entering Kindergarten confident independent problem solvers. After a year of TK at HSCLC, children are recommended for either kindergarten or first grade, depending on their readiness at that time.
