Mixed-Age Kindergarten 3-6 Years
It is said there are more than “one hundred languages of children” in use at any given time. In our mixed-age Kindergarten classrooms, we expect children to use them all; they will become teachers to each other, finding unique ways to communicate with one another. During the ages of 3 to 6 years, children gain skills and knowledge at differing stages and paces, which is why our Kindergarten curriculum is tailored for each child. Children in the 3-6 year classroom will have the benefit of working with the same teacher for multiple years. A teacher that knows your child well can ensure he or she is a ready learner when entering 1st Grade.
- We help Kindergarten Students develop higher-level coordination through climbing, riding tricycles, and moving their bodies through obstacle courses and running.
- We help Students develop more independence and self-help skills such as dressing, using the restroom on their own, age-appropriate cooking, portfolio documentation, goal setting, etc.
- We help Kindergarteners nurture social-emotional development through a curriculum that encourages the building of healthy relationships with peers, the engagement in cooperate and collaborate play and inquiry, the ability to regulate their own emotions, and acknowledge emotions and feelings in a healthy way.
- We help students develop language and literacy skills through story-telling, sharing ideas, and asking questions of inquiry (How? If? When? What?)
- We help Kindergarteners expand their stamina, sense of attention and mental focus to dive deeper into learning and understanding through experience and exploration.
