Lionheart Children’s Academy Has Locations in Texas & Ohio

Kindergarten is an important step in your child’s educational journey, as it bridges the gap between preschool and full-time school. Without proper support, the big step to kindergarten can be a challenge for some children, which is why it’s crucial to provide them with the skills they need to thrive. At Lionheart Children’s Academy, we offer a Pre-K program designed to set your child up for success in kindergarten. We have numerous locations of our Pre-K development academies in both Texas and Ohio, providing families with the child care and educational support they need. Contact us today for more information.

How We Prepare Your Child for Kindergarten

Our Pre-K program includes a robust curriculum of age-appropriate activities that teach children foundational skills in math, literacy, and life. However, teachers ensure the program is well-rounded to include creative and artistic activities that encourage imagination, as well as activities that help children grow their communication and social skills. All these components come together to give your child the skills needed to take their next steps into kindergarten with confidence. Our program will focus on growing skills in all the following areas:

Language & Reading:

We’ll teach lessons that help children learn about letter-sound relationships and sight word recognition. They’ll also develop critical thinking skills to make predictions.

Math:

Mathematical lessons will include addition and subtraction as well as the introduction of patterns, graphs, reasoning, and problem solving.

Social & Emotional Skills:

Being around children in a social setting will help children learn to communicate with others, verbally express feelings, and act appropriately.

Physical Activity:

Children will grow their physical skills and get more in tune with their bodies and how to move them. Activities may include jumping rope, throwing a ball at a target, hula hooping, and more.

Artistic Expression:

Children will get to flex their creative muscles with our many artistic lessons. Activities will include music with a focus on pitch and tempo, art projects with 3D creations from clay, and more.

Science & Social Studies:

Your child will have the chance to learn all about the world surrounding them. These lessons may cover topics like animal species, cultural traditions, and more.

Technology:

Technology is a huge part of our everyday world, and children must learn to use it in their studies. We’ll focus on digital technologies and computers, helping children learn to type their names and explore how technology has evolved over time.

How Pre-K Is Different than Preschool

Though Pre-K and preschool programs are both designed to help your child prepare for their future education, there are some differences between the two programs. Preschool is primarily meant for children between the ages of two and four, while Pre-K is designed for kids who are four to five years old. Children in Pre-K classes will participate in activities that incorporate deeper learning and more structured skill-building lessons to prepare them for kindergarten. Even though there is still a focus on fun in Pre-K, the children in these classrooms are ready for more advanced learning, like math, science, and critical thinking. Pre-K is the perfect step between preschool and kindergarten and is meant to help get your child ready for the next steps in their education.

A Holistic Approach to Learning

Proper education plays a vital role in the development of your child, but there’s more to it than that. At Lionheart Children’s Academy, we’re committed to providing a well-rounded experience for your child. Our holistic approach ensures your child also engages in activities that help them develop physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Many of our activities incorporate Christian values and Bible stories that encourage children to grow both spiritually and morally and teach them to make good decisions in life. You can feel confident your child will get the care and attention they need to grow in our well-rounded curriculum.

Partnering with Parents

It’s always said that it takes a village to raise a child, and we believe that statement to be true. We know that the development of your child is dependent on teamwork between our team and you as the parent. Our staff considers the parents our partners and work to develop relationships of trust and support. This helps to give your child the love and encouragement they need from everyone in their lives. We are sure to communicate with parents regularly, keeping them updated on their child’s progress and helping them reinforce learning at home.
