Four Year Old Kindergarten

     (Children ages 4 to 5 years)

Four-Year Old KindergartenThe world of learning takes off for your child in our kindergarten program. Our teachers lead small group activities to broaden your child' s understanding of science, social studies, music, language arts, math and art. Our program uses phonics-based and sight word teaching approaches. A variety of settings and materials are used to accommodate individual abilities. Field trips and class visitor programs enhance monthly study units. Weekly class meetings encourage children to see themselves as problem solvers and responsibility takers. Parent/teacher conferences are held in the fall and spring.
