Junior Kindergarten (3, 4, & 5 day options)


Our Junior Kindergarten program provides excellent groundwork for Kindergarten and
future learning. Using a theme-based curriculum, the class emphasizes alphabet
recognition, phonics, and numbers. These skills are acquired through a variety of games, art, music, stories, science and cooking activities, along with daily small group work. The optional fourth and fifth day options extend the curriculum in a smaller group setting in order to provide more individualized attention in preparation for full day Kindergarten programs. The fourth and fifth days of the program are held at the Nature Center, which provides many opportunities for outdoor learning activities.
