Our Kindergarten is based on a specific curriculum to ensure that your child has a great foundation for the rest of their education. Our goal is that your child will be reading at the appropriate level when they go into first grade.
Phonics instruction is an integral part of learning to read, and children’s abilities develop best in an environment where language learning is both meaningful and functional. With the help of these lesson units children get ample opportunity for guided and independent practice. We use Sadlier Phonics Programs and our intention is inspire in our kindergarteners a lifelong love of reading!
