Academic Programs

KnowledgePoints utilizes a number of different learning and educational materials to support the academic component of our programs. For example, we are offering STEM lessons from ROZZY Career Adventures in our after care and kindergarten enrichment programs. These age appropriate activities are hands-on and encourage the children to become critical thinkers.

The kindergarten enrichment program utilizes center-based learning, allowing the students to choose from carefully crafted activities, while reinforcing the curriculum being taught at school. The lessons include a variety of activities from books and videos to games and experiments. Centers are divided into subject areas, including art, math, language arts, building, and science.

The following are some of the materials that support our academic programs;
