Welcome to Kindergarten!
Kindergarten plays a pivotal role in a child's early development, laying the foundation for future academic success and social interactions. In this critical year, children learn essential skills that extend far beyond academics.
Kindergarten fosters cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth. Academically, children acquire basic literacy and numeracy skills, setting the stage for lifelong learning. However, equally significant are the social skills they cultivate, such as cooperation, sharing, empathy, and conflict resolution.
Kindergarten also encourages creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities through play-based learning activities. Moreover, it introduces routines, independence, and resilience, equipping children with the tools they need to navigate the challenges of schooling and life beyond the classroom. Overall, kindergarten serves as a vital stepping stone in a child's holistic development, nurturing their potential and preparing them for future educational journeys.
Kindergarten students are taught using the College and Career Readiness Standards. There are 10 Thematic Units that integrate science, social studies, reading and writing.
