Our Kindergarten program is a standards based integrated curriculum, where your child is encouraged to learn through a variety of relevant and interesting activities. When these experiences match the child's interest and understanding, learning will take place.

Research indicates that there is a universal sequence of growth that occurs during the first nine years of life. An enormous variance exists in the timing of individual development that is within normal range. The early years are a time to begin the mastery of academic skills and to develop social skills and feeling of self-esteem.
To provide an atmosphere of success, tasks are completed, valued and accepted according to each child's capacity to respond. Children make choices within the limits of materials and environment provided by the teacher.
In addition to providing a traditional kindergarten program, we have designed a two year kindergarten program to serve children who need the gift of time that is essential to become more confident as they move to the next level of academic achievement.
The Kinder-Plus program has a comprehensive curriculum that meets the needs of the child at a pace adapted to best suit their abilities. Skills are addressed in social development, attention and concentration, and academics. The Kinder-Plus class functions as a real transition between the child-centered curriculum of preschool, and the academic expectations of elementary school. The expectation for students enrolled in the Kinder-Plus class is that students will attend a regular kindergarten class the following year. Exceptions would be made based on teacher recommendation if a child is ready for first grade. Students must be 5 years of age as of December 1st, 2014.
