We Believe Kindergarten Aged Children...

  • are at different levels of school readiness.

  • grow and develop at different rates.

  • are active learners.

  • need to touch, see, hear and move to learn.

  • learn a great deal from each other.

  • need opportunities to coordinate and balance academic instruction, learning centers and physical activities.

  • need continuity, reinforcement and enrichment experiences.

What are the Advantages of All Day K?

  • A full-day kindergarten program is consistent with research that demonstrates that early intervention with literacy-rich and numeric-rich programs shows long-lasting improvements in students' achievement.

  • The pace of instruction allows for more hands-on, discovery learning opportunities, and time for exploration through spontaneous play.

  • A full-day kindergarten program can maximize the opportunities to create a caring community of learners: a partnership of teachers, parents and students who work together to lay the foundation for lifelong learning.

  • The format enables students and teachers to have a longer, uninterrupted period of time to structure classroom activities.

  • The additional learning experiences offer at-risk-children a chance for a more"level playing field".

  • A full-day kindergarten program allows more time to work with students during the critical early learning years.
