Lil’ Angels provides Universal Pre-Kindergarten for 4 year old children and daycare services for preschool children ages 2 to 6 years old.
UPK is a two and a half hour program and free for children in New York City who are the appropriate age. All teachers are New York State certified and the program is educationally based.
The curriculum is aligned with the NY State Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core Standards. Although the UPK program targets four year olds, the curriculum takes into account the wide range of developmental stages students have achieved when they enter the program. The program focuses on the main domains including social/emotional development, along with social studies, as well as physical development including fine and gross motor skills. Creative expression/aesthetic development is also addressed. Other major goals include cognitive development and the cultivation of mathematical and scientific thinking. Finally, language/literacy development includes all areas of listening, speaking, writing and reading. Since children “learn by doing,” we provide experiences that are stimulating in all areas physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Children can repeat tasks and revisit learning centers, as they wish, in order to afford them the opportunity to explore experiences deeply. Learning centers include block building, science, math, pretend/dramatic play, sensory (including sand and water), art, computers, reading, writing, listening, musical instruments, etc. Adults are assigned to promote interactive discussions and learning experiences.
Outdoor play is offered daily, weather permitting. This school’s mission is to interact with children in a loving and consistent way in order to aid the development of a love for learning and a love for school.
Daycare is available through private pay and ACD/HRA vouchers. The daycare operation hours are 6:30 am – 7:00 pm. Lil’ Angels is located at 520 Ellsworth Avenue, Bronx, NY
