Seed Room


The SEED Program is designed for children whose parents wish to give them an extra year before entering Kindergarten, for children who miss the public school cutoff date and for children who turn five by December 31st .  The program operates Tuesday through Friday from 7:30 - 5:30, with the option of adding Monday if needed.  This also operates year round. 

While much of the focus in this program is on readiness and preparing children for Kindergarten, there are other areas that teachers feel are extremely important to development.  These two areas also receive a great deal of emphasis throughout the day.

1.      Self-Help Skills:  In order to function in today’s Kindergarten, children must have strong self-help skills.  They need to take care of their personal and school belongings.  They need to ask questions, give information and ask for help.  Being able to finish tasks, use the bathroom independently and attempt to dress themselves (jackets, boots, gloves) are also very important skills.

2.     Self-Esteem:  Feeling good about what you do sets the tone for who you are.  Teachers choose activities that promote success.  They give positive reinforcement to every attempt and accomplishment.
