Your Kindergartener’s Day:
When the goal is learning, it is essential to use methods that work. Our
experienced teachers know that key to a happy and challenged kindergarten is
encouragement to learn within a caring nurturing endowment.

Our teachers pride themselves in creating an academic program designed to
meet and exceed national and state content standards for first-grade
readiness. In fact, our children consistently out perform other children on
standardized achievement tests. We pull together the best educational
research, tools, and time-tested methods to effectively prepare children in a
positive and fun way.

Expansive Curriculum:
Our comprehensive curriculum includes reading, language, arts,
mathematics, science, social studies, music, and physical fitness.

With fewer children in our class, our teachers are able to work individually with
each child. Helping them grow and learn at their own pace.
