The Kids Day Out and Preschool in Frisco focuses on the basics of Kindergarten readiness for 3
to 5 year olds; letters, shapes, colors, numbers, counting, calendar, weather, writing,
history, geography, holidays, socialization, class behavior and circle time, etc.
Child guided themes are woven into the fabric of each area of the school, and activities are
coordinated between all teachers.
For example, if a theme of transportation is chosen, then cars, planes and trains will be
discovered in each area of study. The music component will be songs about cars, planes and trains;
dancers will dance to “Chattanooga Choo, Choo”, “Leavin’ on a Jet Plane”, and “Life is a Highway”;
art projects will revolve around crafts, drawing and painting modes of transportation; and theatre
students read books and act out fairy tales involving the theme.
A Typical Day:
Children in Pre-K love the familiar activities of "morning circle", and we start with this each
day in Kids Day Out and Preschool Class. Weather, calendar, seasonal events and more are typical
conversations that students have during this vital learning and sharing time. Weekly routines are
structured around letters, numbers, writing and Kindergarten Readiness that are carried through the
entire school environment.
Children at this private school are busy! Students rotate through five classrooms that focus on
music, dance, theatre, art and preschool with Spanish.
Each class time is concentrated on skill building with age appropriate activities, and the
teachers make it fun. The faculty is highly trained in their area of artistic discipline, and have
a genuine love for this age group.
