There is always something special and fun going on in the Kindergarten classes. In addition to the themes and activities listed above, the children learn a new letter of the alphabet each week. As they gain knowledge of the relationship between letters and the sounds they make, the children learn to read and write by blending letter sounds. They also learn to read by recognition of sight words. The children will be educated in the area of literacy and will become familiar with the different parts of a book and its contents. The Kindergarten children also enjoy learning to count to 100 by ones, fives, and tens. The students will participate in many hands-on activities with manipulatives, such as creating patterns and graphs, learning about money and measurement, addition and subtraction, and telling time.

A primary focus is providing instruction to each student at their individual stage of development. Our Kindergarten program allows students to develop a healthy self-concept, and to acquire fundamental skills and knowledge for reaching each child's fullest potential.
