Program Details: PreK

Is your child ready for kindergarten?  Does your child have the pre-reading skills to be successful?  The NEW PreK Magic of Reading program will help!  Learning to read can be stressful.  This class provides a fun, positive, and creative environment that promotes learning and increased confidence.  We have no more than 6 children in the class to keep the instructional intensity the children receive strong and more individualized. The teachers can also give help to parents on reading at home.

This program is a perfect fit if your child seems to be struggling with a certain skill or needs more time, support, and encouragement to learn to read or write. The classes are run in small groups but are also individualized to emphasize each child’s strengths. In addition to the instructors, the children will be given mentors to help as well. We have found using the children teaching children concept to be key in helping children learn!

Reading strategies will be emphasized according to a student’s abilities as follows:

  • Reading readiness
  • Alphabet and letter sounds
  • Verbal, language, and writing skills

Our instructors, Kimen Dolch and Shari Platinsky, are both certified special education teachers.  Ms. Dolch is reading specialists with over ten years of experience. Ms. Platinsky is certified in the Wilson Reading Program.  This program meets twice a week and is ongoing enabling us to give consistent intervention as needed by each child at an affordable price of $175 for 12 classes ($14.60 per class). Our mission for this intensive program is to inspire students of all abilities to develop a strong foundation of key literacy skills and to begin exploring the countless possibilities reading has to offer!
