This transitional program has elements typical both to a preschool as well as to a traditional Kindergarten. The schedule and program build from the previous two levels with a more in-depth emphasis on units of study such as community, emotions, health and safety, human anatomy, American history and the traditions and holidays of other cultures. There is an extensive music and creative movement curriculum, which includes singing, dancing and performing.
In addition to the theme-based curriculum each week offers a series of special enrichment programs, taught by either the regular classroom teachers or by once-weekly teaching specialists. These include music, martial arts, Playball outdoor sports skills, pre-reading, pre-math, science and nature.
