Enrichment Pre-Kinder Program for 5 year olds

Teacher: Jennifer Scharnikow

Dana Ferrarelli


The Bungalow is home to our 5 year olds, the older children of Kid Works.  This is an enrichment Pre-K program that caters to children who miss the cut-off date for Kindergarten (September 1st) or children who would benefit from an extra year of development, either socially, emotionally or intellectually.   We are limited to just 10 children in this program where they truly develop leaps and bounds before entering Kindergarten, giving them ‘the gift of time’.

Our Bungalow children have leadership roles on a daily basis which include being Pet Monitor,  Messenger, Snack Monitor and more.  They naturally become nurturing of our younger friends and may show more leadership in their play.

The class is a stand-alone building (hence the name ‘Bungalow’).  They have a nook which houses their science/library area, an independent activity table, a Lego/building table, many wooden blocks of all shapes and sizes, an art studio, an easel and a dramatic play area.   The curriculum follows the same philosophy as a developmentally appropriate program with activities and rug times that are appropriate for their age.


From our Parents and Students

I’m sad. I miss my friends at school. I love that school.

David – Kid Works Student

Both my children attended Kid Works and loved it. Their program is the best and provides age appropriate skills for preschoolers to learn and grow.  The staff and facility are amazing and the schedule is also great for working families.  My boys have thrived at Kid Works and being part of this community has been a true gift to our family.

We discovered Kid Works from a friend and have loved the experience. The staff feel like family and it’s hard to get my son to leave in the evening. He is free to be dirty and encouraged to be hands on with all of the various and ever changing activities. There is a garden growing vegetables, water stations, pet bunnies, pet birds, and pet rats..etc. One day my parents came to pick up my son and he was busing his own dishes from snack time. He immediately came home and wanted to help with our dishes. Things like this are ever day events at Kid Works. We are so happy our friend recommended this wonderful preschool.

Awesome school, awesome teachers, awesome owner.  My son attended here when he was 3 years old.  The school opened up his imagination and artistic skills.  He is now 6 and doing great in Kinder.  Our second child, who is 3 years old, now attends Kid Works and loves it even more.  This place is a must visit if you are looking for a place that will care for your toddlers.

We absolutely love Kidworks! Our daughter has so enjoyed it there. The teachers and administration are friendly and just the right amount of firm. The school is so, so organized. Lot’s of process and procedure, which is great for busy mommas!

This is our first year with our son, and we couldn’t be happier!  The teachers feel like family and our son LOVES being at preschool.  Their concept is very much up our alley; play and exploration 😉  They even have an organic garden, mud play and yoga!”

I feel really good about our son being at Kid Works. As a parent with over-protective tendencies, I don’t feel the typical pangs of concern that I am prone to. I feel that he is not only incredibly safe there, but also very well nurtured in an environment that teaches him to be his own little man. I am so grateful for his experiences and growth, I cannot recommend Kid Works highly enough.
