The Early Kindergarten program uses kindergarten-level texts and materials, and many hands-on experiences to encourage learners to explore the world around them. Language Arts constitutes a larger portion of this program. Teachers build on each child’s innate pleasure in words, establishing a positive foundation for speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Students will be reading simple stories by the end of the year. Students continue to develop their understanding of math, science, social studies, Spanish, and technology.
