Kindergarten Enrichment 

Our Enrichment Program seeks to supplement - and complement! - the current NJ Public School’s Kindergarten curriculum. Students are welcome to join sessions before or after their time at school, thereby extending the half day kindergarten program into a normal school day. 

When The Gingham Giraffe’s child-responsive curriculum is added to the academic one already provided in public schools, children are able to explore new ideas and subjects through varying mediums - art, hands-on projects, games and movement - while reinforcing the basic skills required in math and phonics to confidently move on to first grade.

By nurturing their social and emotional needs, Gingham seeks to forge the bridge between the play-based learning of preschool and the rigorous academics of the full school days ahead. Our curriculum, designed by our Director and team of certified teachers, is outlined by units of study that capture the minds and excite the spirits of 5 and 6 year old children. Including, but not limited to:

  • Geography - Maps, Directions; The World: Continents and Oceans

  • Culture - The World’s Countries and Their People

  • Geology - Inside The Earth: Rocks, Volcanoes, and Wild Weather

  • Cooking & Literature - Books and Their Culinary Equivalents

  • Art of The Masters - Learning from and Emulating History’s Most Famous Artists

Daily exercises in sight words, handwriting, mathematics and managing fine motor productivity, coupled with opportunities for developing socio-emotional skills combine with our unit-based learning for a well rounded program rooted in the principles and traditions of The Gingham Giraffe: We develop happy learners that are eager to explore and experience their world with curiosity and confidence.
