In Kindergarten, students work together with teachers and peers to expand their knowledge and master the kindergarten curriculum. Through daily guided reading children are exposed to book handling and reading text. Children learn techniques to help them enhance their reading abilities. Our Lucy Calkins inspired writing program encourages creativity through daily storytelling and supportive illustrations. Handwriting without tears, read alouds and word study round out our language arts curriculum.

In math we develop a strong foundation in numbers to 100, shapes, sorting and patterns. We build upon this foundation to develop children’s problem solving skills, including basic addition, subtraction and graphing. In science and social studies instruction focuses on inquiries into the world around our young students. Topics include communities, magnets and living things. As part of an IB Primary Years Programme of instruction we cultivate thoughtful and caring students ready to grow into responsible global citizens.

Thanks!
