Our Butterfly Group is our Pre-Kindergarten Class. The children in this group are our four and five year olds and are all eligible to enter Kindergarten the following year. Butterfly Group is more structured and lasts longer than our other two groups, typically about an hour. It is designed to give our Butterflies the knowledge they are expected to have before entering kindergarten, in a way that is fun and engaging for them.
Our Butterfly teachers continue to plan themes that are used as a framework for activities and discussions that teach the math, science and literacy skills needed for kindergarten. We also use the Zoo Phonics program in our Butterfly Group to help the children learn phonics and letter recognition in a fun and exciting way.
