Kindergarten offers a gentle transition into elementary school by making learning a fun adventure. Our Stepping Stones Curriculum is a Creation-based program that focuses on friends learning to respect and care for each other. They learn early phonics, reading, writing, and math skills. In this first year, art is primary medium of expression and literature-based, thematic instruction builds a love of learning. And the systematic preparation for reading, writing, and math is skillfully woven into the curriculum through creative, hands-on activities.
This philosophy of "learning as a fun adventure" is reflected in the classroom's environment. The walls are lined with student art, there are centers where students can feel comfortable to learn, play, or read. Students move and change activities frequently throughout the day, and have a rest period following lunch.
