The Kindergarten Year

Discovery and Developing a Love of Learning

The kindergarten program addresses the developmental needs and interests of five and six year old learners. Bright classrooms are filled with stimulating materials such as building blocks, math manipulatives, iPads, reading corners, as well as areas for classroom meetings and prayer, dramatic play, painting, writing, and drawing.

Students engage in classroom activities that support their growth as communicators, readers, mathematical thinkers, and empathetic community members. In all of the areas, teachers guide students in developing behaviors that foster independent work as well as cooperative learning. Children are also given the opportunity to develop their own interests through inquiry and play. Learning extends to include field trips, performances, and celebrations with parents. Highlights of the kindergarten year include: performances such as the Nativity Play and Noah’s Ark Play, field trips such as the L.A. Zoo and Olvera Street, and a very motivating service learning project working with the Pasadena Humane Society.
