Top Rated Local® Child Development Center

Sheldon Acres offers a Kindergarten readiness preschool program to get your child ready for their first year in school. We use the same phonic and phonemic awareness program used in the Elk Grove, Sacramento city and other surrounding school district schools. This way, there are no surprises when they start school. This program will give your child a good foundation before starting school, so they are ready to go on day 1. Our staff is fully qualified to bring your child up to speed and get him or her ready while they have fun.

The Kinder Readiness Preschool Program

Dolphins is the name for our group of children in our kinder readiness preschool program. We work with the Dolphins on reading readiness and pre-writing activities. As with our Penguins preschool program, we use thematic group activities to teach students and help them become adept at coloring, cutting, drawing, pasting, manipulating small/large objects, learning to read and write their names, recognizing and writing the uppercase letters of the alphabet, counting, number recognition and formation.
These fun activities also teach science, health and safety skills. Your children will get a continuation of the learning activities from the Penguins, but the Dolphins are geared more toward school readiness and are specific to your child’s development levels.
Dolphins’ daily activities include morning circle, calendar activities, songs, stories, dramatic play, small group theme based activities, free play, outdoor play, seasonal swimming lessons and much more.
