Kindergarten Program (4 to 6 Years of Age)
Our kindergarten program prepares children to perform better in school and in the future.
As children move into kindergarten, our goals are for children to have incorporated all the social aspects from their toddler and preschool years. They understand their value as part of the group; they are able to take care of their own needs and the needs of others; they can be part of a pair, small or large learning group; and they are continuing to work on negotiating social situations using dialogue. With this social-emotional background, our oldest groups are now able to devote their time to serious research and in-depth curriculum studies. Children in kindergarten have the most involved questions, and it is up to the teachers to become researchers and help the children learn ways to investigate and research in order to answer these questions.
Kindergarten children learn to find answers from books, peers, and adults, their own experimentation, and experiences they see in the world.
