We believe the Kindergarten experience should be both rigorous and play-based.  Our academic standards are high. We support active engagement and children thinking about their thinking through making choices.  We are community of learners who support each other in staying safe and happy, working and playing together, setting goals (both personal and academic), recognizing our likenesses and differences, and that we are all in this together. Our instruction addresses all five domains of learning; emotional/social, approaches to learning, cognitive development, health and physical, and communication and language.
