Uncertain about what’s happening this fall in your school district? Will your child’s kindergarten year be impacted by potential changes? We’re here for you.
Private Kindergarten offers five full days of in-classroom learning, featuring nationally recognized kindergarten curriculum, to prepare your child for first grade. Our low teacher-to-student ratio means more opportunity for dedicated attention, with a focus on:
This classroom provides significant individual attention to each child, through six distinct learning areas.
Pretend and imaginative play opportunities allow children to try on different roles and materials, and to practice their social-emotional skills.
Learning how things work and fit together is the essential result of using different materials to build constructions and creations.
Children work with a variety of art materials and color concepts, as they develop their creative skills, solve problems, and express themselves.
Science and math concepts are explored through experiments that help children practice investigative and critical thinking skills.
Through letter and word recognition and formation, separating words into sounds, and assembling sounds to make words, children develop their written communication skills.
In a cozy space filled with books, children work on their literacy skills, such as story reasoning, print awareness, and letter recognition.
In a small classroom setting, children receive personalized attention from our state-certified teacher. Using nationally recognized, research-based curricula, our program provides a strong foundation for your child to move on to first grade the next school year. The program offers a variety of experiences, such as independent study opportunities and planned, teacher-led instruction. Children’s progress is monitored and recorded across five important knowledge areas, in order to ensure their readiness to enter first grade.
Independent work or group instruction (small and large) are used to explore important concepts such as letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and literacy comprehension. Children learn what story concepts are; how words are created; learn to express their ideas and develop their own writing; learn how print works, and expand their vocabulary.
Math instruction takes five different forms in this classroom: whole group instruction; collaborative learning; small group instruction; adaptive learning; and independent practice. Math concepts are represented by real-life situations, so students can practically apply mathematical thinking and develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Milestone: Solve addition and subtraction problems, and add and subtract within 10.
Desired Outcome: Student can add and subtract using a collection of objects; student can distinguish between addition and subtraction.
Everyone has a story. Students will explore personal experiences, family stories, and traditions. Our focus includes helping children to understand the world they live in, understand the concepts of time and place, and to show respect for others.
Your child will learn to understand the scientific method; observe local weather conditions; describe patterns over time; discover animals, plants, and the environment; and investigate strengths, directions, and their effects.
To be school-ready, we work with children to help them learn how to hold a pencil with a proper grip; use scissors to cut pre-formed shapes; follow directions; work independently; ask for help as needed; recognize and follow classroom routines and procedures; independently attend to personal care; understand another’s point of view; show conflict resolution skills; and respect the rights of all others.
Self-Regulation & School Readiness
Self-Regulation & School Readiness
As a family, it’s important to work with your children on understanding limits and following rules—both are essential skills that help your child prepare for the challenges of school.
Recent research has found that kindergarten teachers rank the ability to self-regulate as the most important characteristic necessary for school readiness.
We provide peace of mind to all of our families through comprehensive security and safety procedures and measures. That’s to protect the most important part of our school—your child.Learn More About Safety
