Preschool Goals

Preschool Goals are for children 30 months through 4 years

Kids Way utilizes the Award Winning Handwriting Without Tears "Get Set For School" Program, incorporating Readiness & Writing and Math & Numbers, in addition to Foundation in Literacy, by David Matteson. This is the same handwriting, math, and literacy programs used in the Lake Stevens School District Kindergarten Classrooms. The children enjoy daily small group circle time, play dough, arts and crafts, and (weekly) science and baking, PE/Gym class at the Lake Stevens Athletic Club, and twice a month field trips to the library. Kids Way also participates in Early Achievers and WAKids P-3 alignment. 
 
Kids Way children sing, dance, run, jump and explore daily.

Kids Way partners with The Sno-Isle Library and monthly receives 36 new hardback books for our Preschool/Pre-K Classroom; in addition every other month the librarian is a circle time guest and she sings songs, performs with puppets, and has felt board and other activities. 

We offer Preschool Families conferences and progress reports each year in the fall and spring.

Kids Way Preschool & Pre-K Class participates in special occasions such as Moms & Muffins on Mother's Day Weekend, an annual Christmas Concert, Dads & Doughnuts on Father’s Day Weekend combined with our Spring Concert and Pre-K Graduation.

Most importantly, Kids Way parnters with families to help their children succeed within a loving classroom environment.
