Kindergarteners attend school from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Using a developmentally appropriate curriculum that nurtures and respects each individual child, kindergarten provides a safe community for investigating, observing and exploring the environment. Our program is rich in all the domains of the developing learner: affective, cognitive, social, physical, and spiritual. Class size is 8-12 students per teacher.
Grades 1 and 2
Children in grades 1 and 2 attend school from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Mondays through Thursdays, children in grades 1 and 2 spend most of their 3½ hours with a single teacher. Our approach for grades 1 and 2 is to organize the curriculum around themes related to history, science, or literature. Students develop the primary skills of reading, writing and math within the context of these themes. Additionally, the children attend a music class taught by a music teacher once each week for 40 minutes. Class size is 8-12 students per teacher.
On most Fridays, children in grades 1 and 2 participate in Enrichment Days in which parents teach the class. On these days, the primary emphasis of instruction is one of our social studies/science themes. Teachers are on campus to provide additional support if needed.
Discovery classes are available for an additional fee for students in grades K – 2 on Monday – Friday until 3 p.m. and Monday and Friday for 3rd grade until 3 p.m. The mission of Discovery is to provide a safe, enriching “hands-on” learning environment, which incorporates a variety of STEM and Charlotte Mason practices with certified teachers in a comfortable low key setting. Our vision is that children will experience an afternoon unplugged from our ever busy lifestyles and enjoy creative play while fostering friendships.
