Kindergarten is the perfect combination of friendship and learning. Your child learns to think reasonably, anticipates outcomes, analyzes objects and solves problems. We challenge our children during big projects and encourage them to display their discoveries. This program focuses on providing a structured curriculum that teaches higher level thinking skills. Some of our subjects include language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, yoga, Spanish, music, technology and creative arts.
Elementary School Programs
Your child becomes independent and confident during the elementary school years. They experience long school days, writing stories, adding and subtracting, and even conducting science experiments. Most precious of them all, we experience the growth of their reading & math skills. Our goal of getting everyone reading with confidence is amongst many we strive for. We encourage parents to be apart of the developing stages by reading daily to their children and assisting them with homework assignments. Making school work a project for all and emphasizing that learning is fun.
These are the years that students use their imagination, end stories with their own twist, become critical thinkers and learn to process what they are reading or have learned.
