The VPK program at Backpack University is provided to help children expand their knowledge and prepare for kindergarten and the years of schooling that lie ahead. Learn Every Day: The Preschool Curriculum and Nemours BrightStart! are used to expose them to the topics and beginning concepts of math, science, reading, technology, arts, and both shared and independent play.
We utilize a carefully planned and formatted schedule to begin to introduce structure to a child’s day. Cognitive focus skills are continuously worked on through matching, sequencing, object recognition and storytelling activities. Penmanship is also built upon with daily writing tasks, and ABCmouse Early Learning Academy supplements our hands-on technology sessions with tablets, computers and projectors. Center time with real-life enhancements help foster a child’s social skills, and outdoor playtime is allotted for physical development.
Our goal is to create well-rounded students with the basic academic knowledge, life skills, good manners and values necessary to be successful in school and the world beyond our center.
