Our Program

Our philosophy is to offer your child the best possible experience away from home and an opportunity to thrive, while developing a sense of belonging and a feeling of security while he or she is under our care and away from you, his or her parents or guardians. The focus of this preschool is to provide your child with a “blended” day of activities.  Our program blends creative play with an introduction to the classroom setting and teacher-led curriculum, which is predictable, yet flexible. Kootenai Kids Preschool (K2) offers a comprehensive early learning program that provides instruction to develop oral language and early literacy and mathematical skills for children. This program is responsive to the individual needs and interests of your child and promotes learning through exploration and hands-on experiences.

 A goal of K2 is to improve outcomes for your child in the areas of:

• Cognition

• Functional abilities

• Early reading/writing

• Language competencies

• Oral language

• Phonological processing

• Mathematics achievement

• Social-emotional development

 A Typical Day at K2 for all of the children: Your child will be under adult supervision at all times, as per the city of Boise code for early childhood child care regulations.  Your child will be able to explore all of the activities at K2 at her own pace. Although your child will be required to follow the basic rules and, when appropriate, remain in a group setting, she may participate at any comfortable level.   The Library is available throughout the day, our quiet room with books, if your child would like to rest or find some individual space.

Summer Program:
  Children up to age 8 and partial day schedules are available during the summer.  During the summer months, our program will be more casual. We will highlight weekly themes and out of doors, warm weather activities will be incorporated. Outings to the park and field trips may take place during the summer program. 

Preschool Program for ages (almost) three to four: At this level the children will be involved in the Zoo Phonics Adventures in Learning Program. This program believes that children are ready, willing and able. “Their brains from birth on are developmentally ready for more complex thinking.” This curriculum is playful and child-centered.

Pre-Kindergarten Program for ages four and above: During the morning portion of each day, your child will continue working with the Zoo Phonics program and engage in activities from the Reading Street PreK literacy program, researched and published by Pearson Education, Inc. A sample morning includes: oral language, centers and small groups, shared reading, letters and sounds and language arts. Independent center activities evolve around a book corner, a writing center, discovery, blocks and puzzles and dramatic play.
