KINDERGARTEN

Preparation for 1st Grade and a whole lot more!

The Kindergarten curriculum is a little more structured than preschool.
There is an emphasis that Kindergarten age children learn to work together on team projects to promote cooperation, appreciation, respect and social development.
The goal is to have children who are confidently independent, socially capable, creatively inspired, and culturally responsible.
