In this full-day kindergarten, we have only sixteen children with one teacher. If your child is developmentally ready for a kindergarten program but does not meet district age requirements, you may want to consider this as an alternative. Parents who are working and want their children to have a high quality experience with the same teacher throughout the day will appreciate the full-day curriculum. Children engage in many activities emphasizing both creativity and problem solving. Hand-on learning takes place in math, language arts, social studies, science, and other learning centers.
