Private Kindergarten

One-of-a-Kind Academic Experience There’s a lot of uncertainty about the next school year. Is your child starting kindergarten? Was their Pre-K experience shortened, or are they just not feeling ready?

We can help. Private Kindergarten offers five days a week of in-school learning, based on nationally recognized kindergarten curricula. Small class size means a big opportunity to prepare for first grade and develop these essential skills:

Independent reading Writing to communicate ideas Number knowledge, operations, measuring, and geometry
Using the scientific method to study the world

Comprehensive Curriculum and Knowledge Areas In the Private Kindergarten classroom, our degreed teacher leads a small group of learners. With nationally recognized, research-based curricula, your child will build a strong foundation and be prepared for first grade. Learning is a mix of independent and teacher-led experiences. Along the way, we measure your child development across these five key knowledge areas:

Language & Literacy Letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and literacy comprehension are explored, either through independent activity or through group instruction (both large and small). Your child will learn about story concepts; discover how words are made; work on their own writing; learn how print works; how to express ideas; and how to expand their vocabulary.

Math There are five different methods of math instruction: whole group instruction; collaborative learning; small group instruction; adaptive learning; and independent practice. Teachers use real-life comparisons to bring math concepts to life. These experiences help your child to strengthen their critical thinking and their problem-solving skills.

Social Studies Getting to know the world around you is a great way to learn something new. These lessons explore concepts of time and places, and how to be respectful of others. Personal experiences and family stories and traditions all inform the learning experiences.

Science In this section, children learn how to use the scientific method, how to observe local weather patterns, and how to describe patterns over time. In addition, we’ll learn about our environment and make discoveries about different animals and plants.

Self-Help & Social Skills Many important skills make a child school-ready. These include holding a pencil with a proper grip; using scissors to cut pre-formed shapes; recognizing and following classroom routines and procedures; understanding another point of view; showing the ability to resolve conflicts; how to both follow directions and work independently; and being able to respect the rights of others.
