Prodigy Preschool and Childcare at the Staten Island Skating Pavilion is a specialty program in which children learn the fundamentals of ice skating and become academically prepared for kindergarten.
In small groups, children learn the techniques and foundations of ice skating during one hour of on-ice activities everyday. Therefore at Prodigy, children are not only becoming prepared for kindergarten, but also obtain the athletic fitness and health benefits of skating. The coaches are fully certified by the United States Figure Skating Association (USFS) and also coach at the Pavilion's skate school.
The rink has been renovated to include three beautiful classrooms for our students. We encourage exploration and hands on learning and teach through direct instruction and center-based activities. Children are given an age appropriate curriculum which will prepare them for kindergarten. Our small classroom size provides an intimate setting where children are able to receive much one-on-one attention from the New York State certified teachers.
Prodigy is designed to be a home away from home for children where they can learn, laugh, grow, and have fun. Our program focuses on inspiring creativity and independence through a socially stimulating and academically challenging curriculum. It is truly a Different Kind of Preschool.
