For children 5 years old
Kindergarteners are ready to expand their early learning and develop the foundational skills necessary for a successful elementary experience. Our curricula include Journeys(Literacy), Fundations (Phonemic Awareness), Lucy Calkins’ Writing Workshop (Writing), and enVision (Math). Classroom learning is extended through field trips and a summer camp experience. A typical day includes: a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack; tooth brushing; Morning Meeting with weather and calendar review; whole-group literacy lesson followed by exploration, problem-solving, and interaction at Learning Labs, including Guided Reading; read-aloud and independent reading times; science, art, and social studies centers; gross motor play (outdoors if possible); and a Home Link activity that links learning to life at home.
A full or partial day program can be coordinated with parents’ schedules; a summer program is available.
Kindergarten classrooms are led by certified, highly qualified teachers and have 2 teachers with up to 25 students.
