STAFFING

All staff members are selected following equal opportunity guidelines. Job descriptions, terms of employment and compensation are all included in personnel policies.

Because we believe, the quality of our staff is directly related to the quality of our program, we require that all Kiwi Preschool Teachers Aides, Teachers and Administrators meet the minimum requirements as set forth in Title 22, Article 6 of the State Licensing Regulations. All Kiwi Teachers and administrators have completed the required Health and Safety training which includes certification in Pediatric First Aid and CPR. At least two of our teachers are bi-lingual.

WHAT WILL YOUR CHILD LEARN?

Kiwi logoKiwi Preschool staff follow a planned curriculum and write detailed lesson plans using weekly themes. Students have the opportunity each and every day to participate in small group, large group and independent activities. These activities are both teacher directed and child directed. Your child is encouraged to participate in all activities and is given many opportunities to practice leadership skills. He/she will be taught the skills of how to “be” a “friend” to peers in order to “have friends”.

Staff teach to the areas of Reading Readiness, Creative Expression, Social Skills and Work Habits, Gross Motor Development, Fine Motor Development, Math Readiness and Cognitive Development.

In the spring, Kiwi staff assess each child in all of the above mentioned developmental areas using our age appropriate assessments. Following these assessments parents have an opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher.

Our purpose in offering these conferences is two fold:

  • to provide a clear assessment of your child’s development in all areas and
  • to provide an opportunity for the exchange of information which will benefit the needs of your child.

It is common for us to have 100% parent participation.
