Kindergarten Prep prepares children for additional learning expectations by providing age appropriate responsibilities and challenges. Children make connections through hands-on curriculum, collaborative learning opportunities and "have to" jobs. Students work towards goals with teacher support both inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to centers created each day in the classroom environment, children are exposed to and invited to participate in Music, Spanish, American Sign Language and Physical Education classes, as well as time in the Atelier, our very own Art Studio.
Both Kinder Prep and Kindergarten are full day programs, Monday through Friday, starting their day at 8:30am outdoors followed by Morning Meeting. Their day ends at 2:30pm.
Kinder Prep is open to students who are 4 years of age by September 1 of the year of entry.
Both Kinder Prep and Kindergarten use California State Standards as a framework for curriculum design. Additional instruction is provided for students, adding deeper elements to their course of study during the year.
