Our Kindergarten Classes

  • Our Kindergarten programs are so successful due to the small class sizes, the nurturing and developmentally appropriate learning environment, the experienced teachers, and the highest quality curriculum in all areas of learning. Our kindergarten families and students receive an individualized, differentiated approach to learning, and are given the best private school education around!

    The children in Jr. K. are given a complete kindergarten curriculum which thoroughly prepares them for our Sr. K program the following year. They enjoy predictable routines each day, including activities such as:

    • Spanish Immersion classes each week
    • Writer’s Workshop
    • Guided Reading small group instruction starting spring semester
    • Phonics
    • Math lessons with an interactive Smart Board
    • Art classes from a certified art instructor
    • Two field trips a year

    The Sr. K curriculum sets high academic standards, and thoroughly prepares the children for 1st grade. Although this curriculum is quite rigorous, the small class size allows the teacher to effectively work with each individual child to meet his or her needs. They enjoy predictable routines each day, including activities such as:

    • Spanish Immersion class each day
    • Guided Reading small group instruction all year long
    • Phonics
    • Math lessons with an interactive Smart Board
    • Art classes from a certified art instructor
    • Four or more field trips a year
