Kindergarten students spend longer periods focusing on one topic than they did in preschool or pre-K – allowing for deeper communication, more critical thinking, and analysis of subject matter.

In the full-day kindergarten program, students tackle math, grammar, phonics, and reading in the morning, while afternoon sessions feature music, writing, Spanish, and science several times each week. The half-day program is offered morning and afternoon, and covers all of the same instruction areas in a compressed format.
