Our Kindergarten Program

Comprehensive curriculum preparing children for school success

Our center develops expectations and practices in concert with our state curriculum standards so children make an easy transition into the local school system. At the same time, our curriculum builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests. There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills. Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you so much for the time and energy with Avery this year! Every day, she's excited to learn, and that speaks to your actions as her teacher. You are patient, and help her learn in ways that make sense to her. Thanks for all you do!"

What If?

You Will Need:

Your child and an imagination

Directions:

Take turns answering questions like: 

  • “What if you were king or queen?”; “What would you do with your power?”; “What would you do all day?" 
  • “If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?”; “What would it be like there?
  • “If you could go on the perfect vacation, where would you go?”; “Who would you go with?”

Tip:

This is a good opportunity to share family values – think about your answers, too…if you were a queen, would you feed your people or buy diamonds and gold? Have your whole family ask and answer questions. Think of questions that your child has some experience with and extend his thinking on the subject.
