Half-day kindergarten Class (5 and 6 year olds)
Be five years old by August 31st. (4 year olds with Sept/Oct birthdays, who have been enrolled previously in a preschool program, please inquire with the director about Kindergarten registration.)
Our half day kindergarten program uses Abeka curriculum and begins with a traditional philosophy of education. The framework empowers teachers to focus students’ attention on the material they need to learn, in a context and sequence that will help them learn it best. Teaching from a practical, traditional approach will develop your students intellectually. They’ll be able to demonstrate appropriate grade level knowledge aligned with scope and sequence, achieve or exceed grade level expectations.
Sounds curriculum uses
age appropriate phonics exercises to help your child associate pictures and
words, enhance their vocabulary, develop reasoning and listening skills, and
follow directions. Your child will apply his/her understanding of one and two
vowel words, special phonics sounds, and blends to create words, finish
sentences, solve puzzles, and color pictures. In the numbers and math
curriculum your child will build a strong arithmetic foundation at this early
age. Your child will learn numbers concepts from 1-100 and practical skills
including telling time, bill and coins value, using the calendar, and much
more. In social studies, your student will get introduced to simple
geography concepts and the beginnings of American history. Your child
will enjoy learning interesting facts from different countries, meeting
children around the world, and understanding the roles of different community
