The Red Door Program
- Both Pre-School and K-Kids are half-day programs.
- Red Door is not a daycare program.

Pre-School - Ages 3 - 5
4 day program only, Tuesday through Friday

Since 1964, Red Door has served the needs of our community. Started as a program for the children of LSUCC church families, Red Door has grown into a
full-fledged Early Learning Center hosting 105 students between our Pre-School and
K-Kids programs.

*
Our curriculum is a unique blend of both academic and social readiness.
*
When the Red Door Pre-School experience is completed, our students are fully prepared to enter kindergarten.
*
We use a multi-age classroom model. Therefore, 3, 4 and 5 year olds are in the same class. We have successfully used this model for decades.
*
Within our program, the daily curriculum is differentiated for learners of various styles and abilities.
*
Our curriculum is full of thematic units based upon the letter of the week.
*
We focus on a variety of skills including, but not limited to: Pre-writing, high frequency word recognition, colors, shapes, numbers and counting, art, science, character development, personal responsibility, following directions, being a good friend and kindergarten readiness.

Kindergarten Kids (K-Kids) Ages 5-6

Available as a 4 day program, Tuesday through Friday and a 3 day program, Tuesday through Thursday.


We bus to/from Saucon Valley Elementary School. (Extra fee applies)

The K-Kids program is built around discovery. We use science and art to promote learning in all of the content areas.

· Students will also have opportunities for enrichment of their current Kindergarten curriculum.

· In addition, we provide K-Kids with experiences in team work, problem solving, understanding and respecting our environment, public speaking and character development.

· We use a multi-age classroom model. Therefore, 5 and 6 year olds are in the same class. We have successfully used this model for years.

· Within our program, the daily curriculum is differentiated for learners of various styles and abilities.

· We work cooperatively with the elementary school Kindergarten teachers to meet the needs of our shared students.

· In addition to science and art, Red Door K-Kids work with high frequency words ("Star"words,) pre-emergent and emergent reading skill development, fine-motor strength for writing, a variety of math skills and group games for gross motor development.

· In the spring, our students perform in our annual "K-Kids Comedy Night" telling jokes at a microphone to an audience of several hundred people. This project encourages the early development of public speaking skills, experience working as a team for a common goal, showing appreciation to others for a job well done, and recognition of how hard work pays off.
