Early Childhood 

Preschool, Prekindergarten and Kindergarten 

 

The early childhood program provides a developmentally appropriate curriculum for students ages 2.9-6 years old. Our standards based curriculum develops foundational skills for emergent reading, literacy, and mathematics, while  maintaining a joy for learning. Teachers focus on cognitive and social  development by stimulating students' curiosity and imagination. Each classroom strives to bring a balance of teacher directed lessons, along with center and play based activities. Small group learning allows for differentiation of instruction, extra practice of concepts introduced as a whole group and promotes social development with peer-to-peer interactions. 

PreSchool, PreKindergarten, and Kindergarten programs are designed for students who meet the minimum age requirements turning 2.9, 4, and 5, respectively, on or before August 31st of the enrollment year. Our PreSchool and PreKindergarten Program offers both half day (8:00AM to 11:30AM) and full day (8:00AM to 2:45PM) options. Kindergarten serves as a full day program that bridges Early Childhood and Grade 1 thought Grade 6. 

For Specials, our PreSchool students attend Music, Physical Education and Art each week. In PreKindergarten, our students are introduced to Spanish in addition to the other specials. Kindergarteners receive our full range of specials, attending Spanish, STEM, Technology, Physical Education, Art and Music on a weekly basis.
