About Totschool

Your child will love our program, which emphasizes the ‘FUN’damentals of learning. Emphasis is placed on the whole development of early childhood learning with focus on cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development. Our curriculum incorporates the kindergarten preparation skills desired by kindergarten teachers of our local school districts. The children will explore everyday subjects through a variety of activities such as math skills, science, reading readiness, shapes, colors, music, art, motor development and free play. Peer group interaction is stressed, as it is essential for children. The Totschool program operates in accordance with most of the School District 68 schedule, and begins in September and runs through May. For health and sanitary reasons, all participants must be toilet trained and out of diapers.

Jolly Phonics

Jolly Phonics, the curriculum for the Pre-K 4 year old program, is a thorough foundation for reading and writing. It uses the synthetic phonics method of teaching the letter sounds in a way that is fun and multi-sensory. Children learn how to use the letter sounds to read and write. Independent studies find that after one year’s teaching, children taught with Jolly Phonics have an average reading age about 12 months ahead of their actual age.
