Kindergarten instruction encourages the growth of problem solving, decision making and communication skills and supports cooperative learning, socialization, healthy self-esteem and creativity. Growth occurs as children actively participate in concrete, hands-on activities each day. Teachers determine the activities based on the children in their classroom and curriculum frameworks. Children have opportunities to assume increasing responsibilities for self-care and independence.

The kindergarten program fosters the important connections between home, school, and the community. This is most effective when families and teachers work cooperatively to encourage and support children as they learn and strive to reach their full potential.
