Our Kindergarten curriculum is based on the premise that all children can learn and that the developmental level of the learner must be respected. It is our intent to focus on the strengths of each child and to facilitate the learning process through inquiry, demonstration, and integrated hands-on experiences. Our goal is to foster the independence of each child so that they can view themselves as an integral part of our "Community of Learners”.
