Kindergarten

The kindergarten program sets the stage for students by establishing the highest yet most realistic expectations for them in terms of curriculum, responsibilities, and emotional and social learning skills.  Our goal brings students to their potential academically, thus providing opportunities to learn social and emotional behaviors that will travel with them throughout their lives.

Language Arts
The emphasis in Language Arts is to introduce the basic skills needed to be successful and independent readers.  The total program includes the development of auditory and visual skills, as well as, writing skills, oral language and vocabulary development. 

Math
Our math program is based on the development of number skills through frequent use of many kinds of manipulative materials, as well as, early paper pencil work.  This provides the foundation for pattern development, comparisons, geometric shapes, graphing, simple time and money and learning basic number combinations.

History/Geography
History/Geography studies are wide-ranging.  Historical times span dinosaurs to the Middle Ages.  Cultural studies are also included in kindergarten program.

Science
Science subjects in the fields of biological and physical sciences are presented during the year, as well as, recycling and the care of the earth.  The science curriculum is a hands-on approach to learning the fundamental processes of science.
