From “Fun Factory” to “Kindergarten Readiness,” Folsom Parks and Recreation has a program for your preschooler that’s guaranteed to keep them engaged in activity while they learn to socialize in a group setting.
Fun Factory provides recreation and educational activities in a positive and supportive environment. Two convenient locations – the Folsom Sports Complex and the Folsom Community Center – include separate classes for 3- and 4-year-olds. Throughout the school year, Fun Factory students participate in many different daily activities that make learning fun. The caring and well-qualified staff will introduce students to colors, the five senses, numbers and counting, the alphabet and phonics, the calendar, writing and more. The curriculum also includes arts and crafts, social time, small group stations, and circle time with stories and songs.
Two similar programs for preschoolers are offered at the Hinkle Creek Nature Center. Instructor Ms. Aileen taught for 10 years at the Fun Factory and now leads the Kindergarten Readiness program for kids ages 4-5. Students learn the alphabet sequence, phonics, site words, as well as develop recognition of letters, and get introduced to “Bob books” to help foster pre-reading skills. In the Preschool “Fun”damentals program, Ms. Aileen introduces 3-year-olds to nature, story time, music, arts and crafts, practical learning, colors and more – all in a nurturing and encouraging environment.
Each preschool program utilizes aides to assist the lead teachers, and small class sizes ensure each child receives individual attention, support and personal guidance. Registration is currently underway for these extremely popular programs. Limited spaces are available! Wait lists are maintained to fill vacancies that occur prior to the start of the session and throughout the school year.
