Our Kindergarten program is designed to support high quality learning while giving every child the opportunity to learn in the way that is best suited to his or her strengths and needs. It is our goal to help students reach their full potential through a program of learning that is consistent, relevant, and age appropriate.

We recognize the importance of helping children to feel connected to the curriculum, to see themselves in what is taught, how it is taught, and how it applies to the world around them.

We also recognize that the needs of learners are diverse. We strive to help all learners develop the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they will need to become informed, productive, caring, responsible, healthy, and active citizens in their own communities and the world. We acknowledge that learning is a continuous and reciprocal process and that a partnership with parents is essential to the success of our students.
