A place where children love to learn

Kindergarten is an important year. What kids learn in kindergarten helps to build the foundation for lifelong learning. We teach kids how to read and write, how to get along with others, and how to solve problems. But more importantly, we teach kids how to love learning!

Your child will make new friends and have lots of time to play and explore the world around them. We welcome each child at their current level of ability and provide developmentally-appropriate learning activities.

Our principal and kindergarten teachers introduce themselves and warmly welcome you to our school community.

Un lugar donde los niños pueden aprender
El kinder es un año importante. Lo que los niños aprenden en kinder los ayuda a formar las bases de un aprendizaje de por vida. Les enseñamos a leer y escribir, a cómo llevarse bien con otros, y cómo resolver problemas. Pero lo más importante, ¡les enseñamos a cómo amar el kinder!

Su hijo hará nuevos amigos y tendrá mucho tiempo para jugar y explorar el mundo que lo rodea. Damos la bienvenida a cada niño en su nivel actual de habilidad y proporcionamos actividades de aprendizaje apropiadas para su desarrollo.

Nuestros directores y maestros de kinder se introducen y dan la bienvenida a la comunidad de nuestra escuela.

"Once you have witnessed the miracle that is the learning and discovery unfolding in the five-year-old brain, nothing will ever be viewed in quite the same way again."

– Wendy Sycks, Kindergarten teacher
