Kindergarten program

In our full-day Junior and Senior Kindergarten Program, your child receives individualized attention and interactive lessons in listening and speaking, math, reading, science and technology, self and society, and writing. Class sizes average between 14 and 16 with one full-time teacher, a full-time assistant teacher and specialist teachers for visual art, music and French.

Kindergarten students begin each day at 8:30 a.m. in Morning Meeting. Our students hear stories, listen to presentations by schoolmates and share thoughts on topics of interest. The day follows with a blend of active exercises, guest speakers, language lessons, and math and science activities. As in all grades, our family-style hot lunch, supervised at each table by faculty members, is a time to learn table manners, learn why eating a healthy balanced meal is important, share stories and meet children from other grades.

Athletics and Arts Awaken Minds
Kindergarten students take part in a structured recreational program including swimming, skating, soccer, softball, badminton and cooperative games. Creativity and artistic abilities within each child are also developed through programs covering vocal music, visual arts and drama.
