Comprehensive Curriculum and Knowledge Areas

In our Private Kindergarten classroom, your child will have personalized attention from a state-certified teacher in a small classroom setting. Our nationally recognized, research-based curricula provides a strong foundation as your child progresses to first grade the following school year. Students will participate in a variety of activities in Literacy & Language, Math, Social Studies, Science, and Self-Help & Social Skills. Progress will also be monitored and recorded across five key knowledge areas to demonstrate learning and readiness for entering first grade.


Language Arts

Through large and small group instruction, and independent learning centers, students focus on letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and comprehension. Your child will develop skills such as understanding story concepts; understanding how print works; understanding how words are built; writing development; expressing ideas clearly; and vocabulary.



We understand the importance of knowing what your child has already learned and what they are ready to learn next. Students will participate in five different modes of learning: whole group instruction, collaborative learning, small group instruction, adaptive learning, and independent practice. Students have the opportunity to apply mathematical thinking to real-life situations and are supported in developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills.


Social Studies

Students will have the opportunity to share personal experiences, family stories, and traditions. They will also focus on developing skills such as gaining an understanding of the world they live in, understanding time and place, and showing respect for others.



Throughout the year, students gain skills in areas such as understanding the scientific method; observing local weather conditions; describing patterns over time; discovering animals, plants, and the environment; and investigating the effect of strengths and directions of pushes and pulls.


Self-Help & Social Skills

Support with self-help and social skills are critical to a child’s development in kindergarten. Some of the essential skills your child will develop include holding a pencil with a proper grip; using scissors to cut pre-formed shapes; following directions; working independently; asking for help when needed; recognizing and following classroom routines and procedures; independently attending to personal care; understanding another’s point of view; showing conflict resolution skills; and respecting the rights of others.
