Preschool: A Time for Fun and Preparation
Preschool children play hard while at the same time acquiring the skills necessary to prepare for their kindergarten years. The teachers provide a variety of hands-on experiences through creative art, science discoveries, active play, language activities, math, social learning and play skills. We make learning a fun and meaningful experience and believe that children learn best when allowed to explore and discover at their own rate of development. The preschoolers are also active participants in the Feed Me Fresh and JEWEL intergenerational programs throughout the day. This is a full-day, year-round Pre-Kindergarten program.
A Powerful Testimonial
“I am the proud Mother of two foster sons that attend MKCCC. My older son joined our family and MKCCC when he was one-year-old. This quiet little boy was placed in Infant B. As anyone can imagine, being removed from your home at the age of one, placed in a new home and immediately placed in daycare can be traumatizing. The teachers and administrators embraced this little guy and gave him love, support and acceptance. He quickly blossomed into a very confident and very talkative toddler. He eagerly transitioned into Toddler B. There he learned class routines and rules. He continued to be nurtured and cared for unconditionally. During this time, he experienced some behavioral challenges. The toddler team supported him and went above and beyond to help him through this time. The teachers were open and honest as we communicated daily. Presently, my son is in Pre-K A, and will turn four in June. He has grown into a confident, loving and intelligent boy whose favorite food is broccoli, thank you, Feed Me Fresh! He is eager to go to school each day to spend time with his friends and teachers, and to participate in new and exciting experiences.
This past December 2017, my family welcomed a second foster son. He arrived at one month of age with a significant medical history. In March 2018, he joined Infant A. He was embraced with the love and support that his older brother received. He is thriving in his environment. He has started to giggle, hold his bottle and sit up. The teachers are warm and caring, and take time to communicate with me daily.
Being a parent of foster children can be challenging. I cannot put into words how grateful I am for MKCCC. The administrators, teachers and staff are professional, knowledgeable, supportive and kind-hearted. The programs imbedded in the center are unique and remarkable. The love, support and experiences MKCCC has provided for my special boys are invaluable. Our family will be forever grateful to this very special place.”
