Welcome to Our Preschool Transition Program!
Welcome to Wondertree Kids! We are located in the works section Plaza El Segundo. Our philosophy is to support your child’s social-emotional development to get them ready for Preschool or Kindergarten and provide a consistent routine and structure to their day while developing their independence. Wondertree Kids is known for it’s Music & Movement, Messy Art and Play 2 Learn classes, and all those components are weaved into our day. Observations are available Monday-Thursday at 9:30 AM or 11:30 AM. We’d love to meet you and give you more information about our program.
What is Preschool Transition?
Our Preschool Transition class for young children is developmentally age-appropriate, stimulating, and exploratory. This is a child’s first step to an educational and communal environment. Led by expert teachers, the class features engaging and fun individual and group activities – from imaginative play, dance, to story-time, and even science projects. Each month, we explore a different educational theme. This is a wonderful stepping-stone to preschool or kindergarten.
What is Our Philosophy?
The philosophy of learning at Wondertree Kids is eclectic. It is based on the belief that healthy human emotional development is dependent on secure, empathetic and nurturing relationships. An environment that is structured and predictable is required if children are to develop a balance between dependence and independence.
Your child will be set up for success in this program. It’s an amazing opportunity to build a strong foundation of socialization skills in a group setting. Wondertree will work with both the child and the parent in the separation/transition process in a nurturing manner.
We change diapers! Please bring diapers/wipes if needed. Let us know if your child is transitioning to the potty and we will support their development. You are welcome to bring a “lovey” or “paci” to help your child feel comfortable while you are away.
Our weekly lesson plans focus on all school readiness skills in a fun and creative way.
