In the formative years of kindergarten, our students are offered opportunities to better understand the world around them through individual and shared inquiries. They enter school as explorers, designers, engineers, writers, readers, mathematicians, and so much more. We nurture children’s natural curiosity, imagination, and enthusiasm, and ensure excitement is cultivated as each child grows and develops. Children must feel safe, loved, and nurtured to develop the trust they need for their healthy development. Our goals for Kindergarten students are to develop a positive self-identity and empathy for others through healthy cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and moral development. Through an integrated curriculum, students begin to connect one idea to another as they build their skills for learning. Kindergarten students learn what it means to be active members of a learning community and of the world.
