The Kindergarten program provides a safe and fun environment in which foundational skills in language, motor skills, and social interaction are developed. The curriculum provides children with a dynamic environment that promotes growth in all areas.
The integrated curriculum consists of three levels: K1, K2, and K3 and emphasizes developing a love for learning through engaging physical and mental activities that include hands-on activities, songs, discovery, and group activities.
The activities provide students with multiple ways to express their individuality and preferences. It also helps them to develop a positive attitude towards their peers, teachers, parents and themselves. Students are provided with opportunities to develop the ability to concentrate and access information in engaging, exploratory ways.
Teacher-guide learning is provided in all subjects. The ultimate goal of the Kindergarten program is to provide our students with a comprehensive and applicable groundwork for success in primary school and beyond.
Common Core (ELA & Mathematics): “The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) represent a coherent progression of learning expectations in English language arts and mathematics designed to prepare K–12 students for college and career success. The standards define the knowledge and skills students should have in their K–12 education, emphasize learning goals, describe end-of-year expectations and focus on results, leaving room for teachers to determine how these learning goals should be achieved.”
Jolly Phonics: “Jolly Phonics is a fun and child-centered approach to teaching literacy through dynamic phonics combined with meaningful actions for each of the forty-two letter sounds. The multi-sensory method is very motivating for children. Teachers can evaluate progress through a variety of assessment methods.”
