Policies

The Kindergarten year is very important. It should be a successful year for each child to develop a love for school and learning. It is also an opportunity to develop and enhance a positive self-image.

 

Our program is planned to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and academic needs of your child. Each child has individual developmental needs and as teachers, we plan accordingly. This program is characterized by the following principles of learning:             

 

  • Children learn through their senses.

  • Children learn through active involvement.

  • Children go through similar stages of development, but at different rates.

  • Children learn through play.

We recognize and reward great behavior in Kindergarten.

Homework

Your Kindergartener will have some homework.   Each night please read with your child.  There will be written homework sent home occasionally.
