Kindergarten First Day

The Joy of Learning, Inside the Classroom and Out 

We believe students learn best through active learning and positive reinforcement. Our dedicated teachers use a forward-thinking, evidence-based curriculum that goes beyond core competencies, extending into areas like social-emotional learning and design thinking. We assess and appreciate each child’s strengths, challenges, individual interests and unique gifts. And we equip our teachers with support staff and technology so all students achieve their greatest potential. That's our commitment to “Each Child, Each Day.”

 


 

Going Beyond Core Competencies

Students can become avid and curious readers when they read a wide range of high-quality, increasingly challenging texts. Using a multi-sensory approach, we help students articulate their ideas both in conversation and in writing. Students practice writing daily, progressively mastering their written skills and applications.

Staying Active Every Day

Unlike a lot of schools, our kindergartens have physical education every day. Research suggests that structured physical activity has positive influences on concentration, memory and classroom behavior. Data also shows a positive relationship between physical activity and academic performance. Led by Assistant Athletic Director and PE Coordinator TJ Hendricks, our PE program keeps kids active and engaged.

The K–8 Model

The Right Mix of Nurturing and Maturing

The K–8 model offers a great balance. It gives lower schoolers a nurturing learning environment and challenges middle schoolers to grow as leaders and role models. One of our favorite traditions is the K8 Buddy program, because it exemplifies the K–8 experience. We mach each kindergartner with an eighth grader, and the pairs enjoy playdates and learning activities throughout the year.

Knowing the effect that music has, it brings me joy to teach this subject. Music is a part of all of our lives, but many people never learn anything more than a passing awareness. Because all of our students take music, I am excited to teach each and every child how to be aware of music, and how to appreciate it.

Dr. Pieter Crathorne, Lower School Music


 

An Appreciation for New Perspectives

When students experience music and art as creative outlets, they develop their own artistic voice, gain confidence, and learn to see the world from new perspectives. Like other electives, art and music integrate core competencies like literacy for a more enriched experience.

Fostering a Love of Learning

We offer a forward-thinking, evidence-based curriculum that considers the whole child, not just academics. It offers the right balance of rigor and play while tailoring the education experience around each child's unique strengths and weaknesses. But perhaps more importantly, we have been blessed with some exceptional educators who put that curriculum into action and inspire their students to develop a love of learning.
