Kindergarten

 

Kindergarten is a time of new beginnings, challenges and adventures. Our Kindergarten is a developmentally appropriate integrated program catering to each child’s individual academic, social and emotional needs. We have implemented a strong curriculum in which our children learn while working in large groups, small groups and individually. We incorporate centers where concepts are reinforced and children get individualized attention to help with their strengths and weaknesses.

In addition to the above, we form friendships by playing together, eating together and having fun! We also encourage communication between peers and teachers to help children problem solve and navigate the world around them. Your children are very special to us. We understand that children learn at different rates and in different ways. We foster a love of learning and sense of belonging and responsibility. We hope to become a part of your child’s future success in school and in life.
