Inspire. Learn. Grow
We offer both Junior and Senior Kindergarten, full day or half. Kindergarten is the first year some children are in a school environment and we treat it as a transition year to the formal education process. The children work on number, colour, shape and language skills but these are balanced with lots of attention on social development among peers and with teachers. We also use this time to teach basic skills that lead to success in reading and mathematics.
In kindergarten we introduce foundational ethical ideas: helpfulness, teamwork, caring for the environment, respectfulness and safety. Children of this age are also delighted by conversation about heaven, the presence of a loving Creator, and the constant care He provides through angels and parents.
This is a time to lay academic foundations in language and mathematics but even more it is a time to instill a delight in learning. Making school fun is achieved through tons of movement, excursions to the creek and beyond, building and creating, telling stories, reciting poetry and singing.
We work hard to help students experience success and master the process of working toward success, rather than only the results. We do this by pacing work to the individual student’s interests and abilities and avoid stressing the student through high pressure expectations.
