Welcome to Kindergarten!
Kindergarten Digital Learning Platforms:
- Studies Weekly
- Superkids Online Fun
Our kindergarten program provides variety, flexibility and structure. Play, fantasy, creativity, and individual choices are encouraged. Learning activities and formal lessons are woven into the child’s day. Formal lessons in pre-reading and math are presented to all of the children with an understanding that each child will absorb as much as she/he can. We follow the Common Core curriculum in math and English language arts.
There is a constant awareness of the importance of the child’s self-esteem. Praise is given and appreciation is shown for the child’s efforts. It is important that each child feels good about the effort that he/she puts in his/her work. The children are taught to appreciate the uniqueness and individuality of their peers and to treat each other with kindness and respect.
There is a little bit of homework usually related to the letter or the Math chapter we are working on. The work should take no longer than about fifteen minutes and would require some parental supervision. The most effective homework a child can do is to be read to at home.
