Kindergarten

Age 5 by October 31st of the school year.

Kindergarten age children learn best when they are actively involved in their own learning. They need many opportunities for hands on experimentation in order to make concepts and ideas real to them with the teacher guiding and supporting this learning. View our Kindergarten Newsletter.

  • Frameworks are standards set by the State providing teachers with guidelines about what a child should know and be exposed to during the Kindergarten school year.
  • The texts and teacher resources used with your child are from the Harcourt Brace Kindergarten Series.
  • Classroom learning takes place in the following centers: Language, Art, Math, Fine Motor, Science, Social Studies, Dramatic Play, Library, Computer, Circle Time and Blocks.
  • During small group reading and writing groups, the children work on developing phonics skills and beginning reading and writing skills.
