Our kindergarten program was created to offer families a natural next step for their child’s early childhood education. The hours are Monday 8:30-11:30, and Tuesday through Friday 8:30-2:30. We offer a small group size which lends itself beautifully to the needs of the kindergarten child. We offer many special programs weekly gym classes at Teamworks, visits from the Discovery Museum, and monthly yoga classes. We are able to explore the diverse cultures of our kindergarten families through our country study from which our curriculum evolves. We strive to help your child learn to respect and honor differences among people.

Journal work, shared literacy, cross curriculum activities and a print rich environment will help your child become a capable communicator. Children are introduced to a wide variety of literature, including big books, predictable books, fiction, nonfiction and poetry.

Our social studies curriculum progresses from the self, to friends, family and finally to the community. In the past few years, we have visited the Berlin orchards to see how maple syrup is made, the Ecotarium after an animal study, Tower Hill to wrap up a planting unit, and Higgins Armory after studying life in the medieval times.

Our primary goal is to offer children their first taste of what we hope will be a life-long love of learning!
