Our brightly lit and colorful classroom provides a visually stimulating setting for babies to grow. Our infant program is based on a safe, nurturing, and loving environment. We will work closely with you on a daily basis to ensure we are meeting your infant’s evolving needs through love and attentive care. Our play areas provide equipment and toys that support both gross and fine motor development. Reading and singing are a part of the everyday curriculum, as well as embracing the safe streets of Georgetown on daily walks.
M Street Monkeys & Foggy Bottom Frogs
For young toddlers, exploring and understanding their environment is vital to a successful development. Through sensory exploration, children develop a better grasp and appreciation of their world around them. Toddlers are learning independence and embracing their natural curiosity as we prepare them for Junior Preschool.
Pennsylvania Ave. Puppies
Capital Kids Junior Preschoolers are taught by experienced teachers with training in early childhood development. Our developmentally appropriate lesson plans incorporate art, music, science, language arts, and math activities. Teacher-guided circle time includes singing songs, daily calendar, pledge of allegiance, weather, and schedule for the day. Potty training is in full motion as we prepare all the children for Sr. Preschool!
Problem-solving, artistic expression and character building all help prepare your child for a classroom setting. Daily writing and language development help your child build a sense of confidence and self-esteem. Field trips throughout Washington, DC give students a hands-on approach as they explore their environment through personal experiences. Individualized Learning Assessments are completed three times during the course of the academic year so that you can see your child’s progressions!
Rock Creek Robins
Our Pre-kindergarten syllabus is created based on the achievements of the students’ progress from the previous year. Creative thinking and exploring their environment is one of the many fun ways we incorporate science and social studies into the classroom. Working in small groups as well as a whole class leads to independence and interaction with peers. Spelling, writing and sentence writing is achieved during the academic year, as well as individual computer time in the classroom.
Our curriculum is designed to be challenging with the goal that every child succeeds. At Capital Kids we recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles, and personalities. Our programs have a strong foundation in literacy, math, as well as hands on activities in science, art and natural studies. Your child will be engaged daily in activities that are specially designed to promote whole child development. One-on-one attention and small class ratios allows teachers to be attentive to your child.
For the last two decades, Capital Kids has been committed to excellence and educational innovation. We emphasize appreciation and respect for others by being an International School with a diverse student body and teaching staff. Surrounded by the Fairmont, Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons hotels, we are located in our nation's capital within steps of historic Georgetown. Our students are able to embrace diversity and the many cultures that make up Washington, DC.
