Full-Day Kindergarten

Kindergarten Philosophy Statement

We believe that children learn best in an environment where:
• time is dedicated to explore, discover, create, socialize, and learn from one another through meaningful and engaging hands-on, curriculum-based experiences

• family members are active partners in children’s learning

• experiential learning opportunities guided by students’ ideas and interests are integrated into the kindergarten curriculum

• thoughtful and meaningful choice is valued and leads to inquiry, depth and breadth of learning

• purposeful learning opportunities are tailored to students’ strengths and needs

• learning fosters independence, perseverance, and collaboration
