A Mix of Play and Structure
Our students have the benefit of our impressive outdoor play environment, special outside instructors, small classroom size and low teacher-to-student ratio. Our classroom centers provide opportunities for play and hands-on learning that children in a half-day Kindergarten program may not have in their public school classroom. A classroom SMARTBoard, as well as iPads for the children’s use provide additional options for extending the curriculum.
An Enthusiasm for Learning
While Sproutlings Kindergartners are learning at a fast pace and building on academic skills, we still incorporate time for free exploration and creative play. We want to maintain your child’s enthusiasm for learning and keep him or her active and engaged in the learning process. Our Kindergarten Wrap curriculum encourages creative expression and exploration of the arts and music. Kindergartners conduct science experiments, solve real-life math problems, learn to research and explore favorite topics.
The Kindergarten Wrap class at Sproutlings builds on the foundation of an environmentally conscious school that has been fostered in our younger classes. Kindergartners look for new ways to bring conservation and recycling to their homes and communities. They sort containers for recycling and think of new ways to use things that might otherwise be thrown out. They use recycled items throughout the day and become advocates for an environmentally conscious community.
This class also continues to experience and learn about a range of cultures, customs and traditions that were introduced to the Preschool classes. Children new to Sproutlings will enjoy gaining a better understanding of the world around them and learning and embracing differences across other cultures and backgrounds.
Kindergartners take part in center instructional programs for music and gym, make use of the playground daily (weather permitting) and have field trips during the school year. They also have the option to participate in ballet, yoga, swimming and gymnastics classes.
Children can bring their own, nut-free lunch, or order meals (click here for more information).
Our Kindergarten students can attend from 8:30am to 11:50am, 11:30am to 3:00pm or for a full day with transportation to and from school.
