Little Builders


One of our favorite places to visit is the Provo City Library. And right now is a great time to visit because it's the middle of summer and the weather is heating up! So if you're looking for a great activity for your preschoolers then definitely check out the Little Builders exhibit over there. This exhibit is geared toward kids between the ages of 2 and 7 but I took an 8 and 9 year old with me and they had a blast too. So it really is fun for all your children!

When you enter the 4th floor known as "The Attic" at the library the children get to dress up in hard hats and bright orange vests to get their imaginations rolling. They feel the part as they engage in different hands on building experiences such as building structures with blocks and pipes, using a pulley and conveyer belt, and hooking and moving blocks around with a child-sized crane.

Plan on on playing for at least an hour or two because there is so much for the children to get their little hands on. Oh, and did I mention it's FREE?!!!

Thank you for your interest...

Hello!

Thank you for your interest in preschool. I wanted to give you more information about our program and our goals at Miss Kandis: Preschool & Tumbling.

We meet twice a week on Monday and Wednesday from 9:30am-11:45. Tuition is $100/month. We follow the Provo School District calendar for holidays and days off school.

Our preschool is located at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Provo. They are so kind to let us use their space over there for gymnastics and classroom time.

Our goal at Miss Kandis: Preschool & Tumbling is to offer children a variety of learning experiences that will develop gross motor skills, fine motor skills, social skills, and creative thinking and problem solving on a group level and individual level.


Our daily schedule is generally as follows:
9:30-10:15 Tumbling (every Monday, Wednesday will rotate between yoga, soccer, music and movement, baking, and park when weather permits)
10:15-10:25 Snack (we always offer a healthy snack including fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, pretzels, and granola bars.)
10:25-10:35 Transition (fine motor skills such as playdough, dry erase books, lace and trace, stringing beads, etc.)
10:35-11:00 Carpet time (Pledge of allegiance, day of the week, weather, introduce letter and theme)
11-11:30 Learning Centers (a variety of learning activities that help teach the them while incorporating, math, science, art, handwriting, etc.)
11:30-11:40 Choice Play (children can choose between a few different toy options or activities to do for the remainder of class time)
11:40-11:45 Clean up and dismiss

Special events unique to our program:
Talent show – The first month of preschool we spend a lot of time getting to know one another including sharing our talents.
Old Folks Home – In November we like to visit our friends at the Provo Assisted Living Center. We sing songs to them and do a craft with the.
Winter Showcase and art show - In December we put on quite the show! The children will learn a choreographed dance routing, then show off all their tumbling tricks they have been learning. We also hold a children’s art show as a fundraiser to help give back to the SDA church for their generosity in letting us use their building for preschool
Carnival – toward the end of the year we have a fun carnival for friends and family.
Bike Parade – The children get to decorate their bikes and ride them around the parking lot in a parade with music and people cheering them on!
Graduation – At graduation, each child will have a chance to recite a nursery rhyme from memory, sing songs, and watch a slide show of all the fun things we did during the school year.

Fieldtrips:
We generally schedule 3 - 4 field trips during the school year. We try to schedule them on Fridays so it’s kind of a bonus preschool day when we have them.

Let me know if you have any further questions. If you feel like this program is the right fit for your child then let me know and I will put them on the registration list. Official registration for 2017-2018 will begin the second week of May!

Thanks,
Miss Kandis
