Kindergarten I — Overview
In our Kindergarten I Class, all children are immersed in an academically challenging, yet developmentally appropriate, learning environment designed especially for 4 year olds turning 5 and young 5 year olds. Our Kindergarten I Class includes the instruction of writing, phonics, reading readiness, phonemic awareness, math, science and social studies. Our KI teacher Miss Laura Sullivan uses the outstanding curriculum of Tools of the Mind along with supplementary programs that allow for additional support to enhance our program. Miss Sullivan has a degree in Early Childhood Education and she is trained in the curriculum of Tools of the Mind. Using manipulatives, investigating by experimenting and showing understanding through creative expression are integrated in to the academic program. This gives all children the time they need to fully acquire the skills they are learning. In the full-day Kindergarten I program the children will also have instruction in music, art, physical education, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. These programs are included in the full day tuition. Our KI children leave with exceptional skill development in literacy and math and the confidence to perform well in either or KII or a formal Kindergarten Program.
