Kindergarten Level Curriculum
Designed around the interests of the young elementary child, the Kindergarten level program offers a consistent, dependable routine with large blocks of uninterrupted work time. The classroom schedule encourages the child’s spontaneous activity and fosters development of the creative process, integrated personality and a strong sense of self. The curriculum includes materials and encourages activities that promote practical life activities, sensory-motor experiences, literacy, language arts, numeracy, creative arts, science and geography. Each activity or exercise in the our curriculum is structured to provide purpose, procedure, closure and opportunity for success.
