Achieving Elementary School-Readiness

Is your child meant to start kindergarten this fall, only their Pre-K experience was abbreviated? Will potential changes in your school distract impact your child?

Let us be there for your child this fall. Private Kindergarten is an in-school learning program, for five full days per week. Learning experiences are based on nationally recognized kindergarten curriculum and our focus is first-grade preparedness. With a small class size, there’s a big opportunity for your child to focus on: 

  • Independent reading
  • Writing to communicate ideas

Comprehensive Curriculum and Knowledge Areas

In this classroom, your child is part of a small group of learners, led by a state-certified teacher. Our teachers implement nationally recognized, research-based curricula, creating a stable foundation for your child’s transition into first grade the following year. Students will learn independently, as well as through teacher-led lessons. Their progress throughout the year is measured across five key knowledge areas, to ensure they are ready to enter the first grade. 


Language & Literacy

Letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and literacy comprehension are explored through small and large group instruction, and independently at learning centers. Your child learns to understand story concepts; understand how words are built; develop their writing; understand how print works; clearly express their ideas; and build their vocabulary.



In this classroom, math instruction is delivered five different ways: whole group instruction; collaborative learning; small group instruction; adaptive learning; and independent practice. Real-life situations are used to represent math concepts, enabling children to apply mathematical thinking in a practical way, and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.


Social Studies

We want children to understand their world, as well as concepts of time and places, and to be respectful of other people. We learn these lessons by exploring our personal experiences, family stories, and traditions.



Children learn how the scientific method works; how to observe local weather conditions; and how to describe patterns over time. They will also discover plants, animals, and their environment.


Self-Help & Social Skills

To prepare for elementary school, your child will learn how to hold a pencil with a proper grip; use scissors to cut pre-formed shapes; follow directions; work independently; ask for help as needed; recognize and follow classroom routines and procedures; independently attend to personal care; understand another’s point of view; show conflict resolution skills; and respect the rights of all others.
