Kindergarten Schedule

The school hours for full-day kindergarten are 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. and the school hours forBoys flex arms ready for kindergarten half day morning kindergarten are 8:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

The full-day program allows teachers time to encompass the whole child in exploration and discovery learning, as well as social-emotional development.

This is accomplished by offering students choice time to explore topics that interest them through books, projects and play-based learning. It allows the teacher time to extend learning from concepts introduced as part of the core academics in the morning into the afternoon.

We strive to keep class sizes the lowest possible in kindergarten, with typical classes no larger than 20 students. Each kindergarten teacher is supported with a full-time instructional aide.
