The Dragonflies Class:  a Junior Kindergarten Class for highly capable 4 and 5 year olds

The Dragonflies Curriculum

Skill-Based Instruction:  art, science, math, reading, writing, and kindergarten readiness, with small group hands-on activities and weekly Building Block classes (Drama Club, Math Games, School Skills and Science Lab)

Play-Based Exploration:  fostering social-emotional growth, divergent thinking, executive function skills and foundational learning about our world

Inquiry-Based Learning:  nurturing the 21st Century Skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creative production

Project-Based Learning with the Dragonflies:  The children engage in a year-long project, with weekly problem-solving challenges.  Each child will present their culminating project to our entire preschool community at the Dragonflies Project Presentation in the spring.

Best Practices:  Bellevue Discovery teachers follow NAEYC and NAGC best practices (National Association for the Education of Young Children; National Association for Gifted Children). We work closely with the admissions directors at local independent gifted schools to ensure our children are fully prepared to thrive in kindergarten.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
