Children in Kindergarten experience what it means to be part of a group moving toward common goals. Courtesy toward others and respect for materials and possessions are prevalent themes each day. Project lessons integrate core academics--literacy, the arts, math, social studies, and science. Through work and play students participate in theme-based lessons that are enlivened with singing, drama, cooking, handwork, and gardening. Our holistic learning environment encourages students to learn through discovery and draw meaning from the experience.
