Kindergarten

The transition to kindergarten is an important developmental milestone for children and their families. Our teachers work with families to create a seamless transition by sharing information and building relationships of support throughout the transition. Our kindergarten class is taught by a certified lead teacher who continues to develop each child’s individual needs within a formalized Kindergarten curriculum. The program provides academically challenging and developmentally appropriate activities. The curriculum also develops journal writing skills and utilizes thematic study units.

First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade

This first, second and third grades are taught by certified teachers who instructs student in phonics and reading fluency. In English Language Arts, students learn to not only improve reading skills, but develop a love of literature. Our students benefit from a cohesive, multi-text approach to literacy and instruction.

Our math program seeks to create engaged, motivated mathematicians with the ability to think critically and problem solve. By encouraging students to understand  the "why," rather than simply applying a formula, we strive to deepen our students' number sense and ability to attack problems.

Kindergarten, first, second and third grade classes integrate Smartboard technology into lessons. Additionally, first, second, and third grade classes use Chromebooks for small group instruction to incorporate technology and begin learning keyboarding skills.
