Pre-K and Kindergarten

Welcome to the Pre-K and Kinder where we are dedicated to focusing on the unique learning and social/emotional needs of our students. We believe that the early years should be a positive, fun time that enriches children’s knowledge and understanding of the world and their place in it.

Our program is based on the premise that children construct meaning and knowledge through multi-sensory experiences. Young students should be active learners with hands-on experiences and exploration. Student-centered learning activities and projects, as well as teacher directed ones, are geared toward skill development and language acquisition. Children are exposed to many social, sensory motor, artistic, musical, and academic skills and activities.

Pre-K curriculum focuses on reading readiness, number readiness, stories and poems, arts and crafts, and music. We have a variety of materials to explore and centers for role-play and other activities. Kindergarten students work on topics such as math, reading comprehension, phonics, vocabulary, science, music, and arts and crafts. The kindergarten shares the same rich learning environment as the Pre-K.

We attend world language classes (Spanish, Dutch, or English for Speakers of Other Languages) three times a week. We also visit the SIS library for weekly story time and arts and crafts with our librarian. We have physical education class in the gym twice a week.

Every child is a unique individual and should learn to take responsibility for his or her own actions while being treated with respect. We clearly see parents as important partners in this lifelong journey. By working together, we can provide a well-rounded, holistic educational experience for our children and prepare them for the future. You are welcome to visit our classroom to experience the environment and see the students’ work and many artifacts produced on a daily basis.
