Phonics Based Program

Our Phonics based program guarantees our students to be reading or reading ready upon graduation. Andy Bear Early Learning Center is taking the extra step to have each VPK student ready for kindergarten.

There is no cost to parents for morning VPK. This amazing VPK Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program is structured to help your child reach the height of their social, emotional and academic capabilities. Children will start to learn valuable academic basics such as the alphabet, numbers and handwriting skills. The teachers will work to build student’s independent skills, self-confidence, respect, friendship and kindness. Children who participate in this program benefit by being in a class with higher reading percentage rates.

Our focus on early learning is centered around language development and acquisition. While focusing on individual needs, we take the time to help each child build his or her vocabulary through games, conversations, and activities centered on the arts, sciences, mathematics, music, and crafts. We also provide potty-training support to younger children, while offering challenging sports programs for older kids, such as soccer and golf.

We offer a range of programs to help children learn the alphabet, reading, handwriting, and early math. We use a variety of teaching tools in accordance with best learning practices to ensure that every child is ready to start school. Our after-school care programs also provide fun activities, games, homework help, and sports programs to ensure that children stay active.

We work on developing the whole child with a focus on physical activity, cognitive development, and social opportunities. We ensure that each child has the opportunity to learn and grow through a variety of arts programs, academic activities, and games. We want to help each child grow on his or her journey, and our caring and compassionate staff takes the time to get to know each child’s individual needs to support this end.
