The mission of the Kindergarten Department is to meet the developmental needs of the whole child. We provide
experiences that are both challenging and promote social, emotional, physical and academic growth. Students are
encouraged to take risks and to share their ideas, thinking, and problem-solving strategies during whole-class lessons;
in small group cooperative activities; and on individual projects.
Through a combination of developmentally appropriate experiences, guided student activities and student involvement
in classroom management, the children are provided with opportunity to develop a positive self-concept and
a strong sense of belonging. This enables each child to reach his full potential for success.
