Kindergarten

The Transitional Kinder/Kindergarten is a transition from home to school.  Its goals are to help the child master developmental milestones, and to lay a foundation for success in the grades curriculum.  Play-based, it provides a rich sensory environment for oral language, artistic and motor activities.  These activities include water color painting, beeswax modeling, storytelling, puppet shows, and acting out fairy tales.  Practical activities in the kitchen, garden and classroom encourage the child to imitate work done by adults.  These activities serve as preparation for the structured academic curriculum in the grades.
