What's known at Third-Year Primary at Suzuki, this program is a unique opportunity for students to develop not only academically, but also their confidence and leadership skills before they enter Kindergarten or 1st grade. They will leave with a solid academic foundation as well as the confidence and love of learning that will carry them through for the duration of their academic career.
5 - 6 yrs
Continuous, solid growth into a confident, prepared individual
The third year in Primary is the culmination of all that has occurred before. For example, children who worked on letter sounds, listening to sounds in words, and composing words will go on to composing sentences and then paragraphs, and reading books.
Students skip the delayed 'normalization' style and arrive at Elementary prepared
Many public schools use Kindergarten as an acclimation/normalization year where students learn the basics of how to function in a school environment. Our students have already mastered all these skills, so this classroom allows them to continue to progress and strengthen their love of learning.
The student, while still learning, also becomes a mentor
As the oldest child in the classroom, the student reinforces his or her skills by teaching younger students. Research has proven that this strengthens their learning and confidence. In addition, it bolsters their confidence while encouraging stronger friendships by acting as a role model for those who may be new to the classroom!
