Our goal in kindergarten is to promote each child’s cognitive, social and emotional development while fostering a sense of independence, responsibility and accountability for one’s own learning. Experiential learning shapes every aspect of the kindergarten curriculum: individualized instruction challenges learners at their own level and at their own pace; hands-on activities engage children in meaningful learning; and manipulatives and daily physical education enhance motor skills.
Character education plays an integral role in the curriculum. Teachers model values and behaviors as students learn lessons from formal and informal character education experiences. Our kindergarten equips students with the skills to recognize emotions and appropriately act and react in social situations.
In addition, students explore the concepts of citizenship and diversity through a global education component within the social sciences curriculum. Twice weekly, Spanish immersion instruction makes the kindergarten curriculum truly unique.
