Science – Kindergarten-age children are curious about the world all around them and how they fit into it. Our science programs allow them to explore and define their environment in a classroom setting with groups and as individuals.
Social Studies – Social studies study human societies, social relationships, geography, and much more. Students will work on concepts individually and in large and small groups with the guidance of state-licensed teachers and education staff.
Literacy – Literacy is crucial for kindergarten-aged students. Our curriculum includes reading and writing. They’ll continue to build on these concepts throughout the year and life. Literacy is crucial for applying critical thinking concepts.
Social-Emotional – One of the most critical and often overlooked aspects of kindergarten classrooms is developing social-emotional skills. Conflict resolutions, cooperation, building friendships, self-confidence, and many other social skills are learned in our classrooms. These skills are valuable inside and outside of the classroom.
Extra-Curricular – Our teachers organize other extra-curricular activities, including sports, field trips, nature studies, and class picnics.
