The Kindergarten classroom is an exciting place to be. It is a place where children grow spiritually, academically, socially and find that learning is fun.

We have a strong academic program in Kindergarten. Reading, Phonics, Writing and Language take up a big part of our day. The children also have a daily Math and Religion lesson. In addition to our daily lessons, the students will be exposed to Science and Social Studies. We won't forget many special and fun activities throughout the year.  Thanksgiving Feast, Gingerbread Man Unit, Christmas Pageant and Hatching chicks from eggs are just a few of the special times for the Kindergarten class.

Children that are ready for more challenging work are advanced and those that need a little extra help are given individual instruction.

Kindergarten students will also take part in our special subjects.  During the week, the class will participate in Art, Spanish, Physical Education, Computer, Music and Library Class.

This is an important time in a young child's life. We want to provide a secure and happy environment that will promote a love of learning and a classroom where each child will succeed and be proud of their accomplishments.
