A healthy balance of work and play....
Our Kindergarten curriculum addresses the needs of the whole child - their intellectual, social/emotional, creative, physical, and spiritual development. Teachers combine their knowledge with students' interests to promote an academically rich and creative environment. Because young minds are highly inquisitive, our Kindergarten emphasizes the basics - language arts, literature, religion, social studies, science and mathematics. Weekly classes in Spanish, music, visual arts, physical education, and media/technology complete our program.
Opportunities are continually available for individual and collaborative learning as each child's skills are developed. Weekly, hands-on experiences in not only the core content areas, but also in the fine arts allow our students to become well rounded as we continue to build a positive foundation for their learning and curiosity to grow.
We are always mindful that a child's early years are critical in forming attitudes toward God, themselves, others, and learning. The fact that kindergarten is self-contained enables these attitudes to develop in safe and positive ways. Faculty members come to know each child's strengths and weaknesses very well, and continually create opportunities for support, guidance, and tools for growth.
We have high expectations for our students, and they constantly surprise us with their attitudes and achievements at an early age. Social skills and conflict resolution based on the Responsive Classroom philosophy are modeled daily.
