PRIVATE SCHOOL KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
As the culmination of our School Readiness Pathway, Private Kindergarten brings together all the lessons and skills of your child’s journey in a program designed to best prepare them for success throughout their academic life.
This program gives children a chance to sharpen academic skills, such as:
Writing to communicate ideas
Understanding place value – 1’s, 10’s, 100’s
Using the scientific method to study the world
When children investigate, discover, and play — they learn.
With The Teaching Strategies for Kindergarten, teachers now have a research-based, whole-child-focused approach to project-based learning in the kindergarten classroom.
Through in-depth investigations of science and social studies topics that integrate literacy and mathematics concepts, kindergarten teachers can encourage children to think critically, solve problems, and connect ideas.
The Creative Curriculum® for Kindergarten includes teaching guides and other daily practice resources to help kindergarten teachers use studies, or project-based investigations of science and social studies topics, as the core of their day. It provides teachers with opportunities to integrate their existing math and literacy curriculum requirements throughout the various parts of their day.
This curriculum solution enables kindergarten teachers to engage students in deep levels of critical thinking by asking in-depth questions, introducing more technical vocabulary, and challenging students to investigate on their own and with others.
Kindergarten is a unique year in school, during which students are transitioning from the high-energy, playful environment of the preschool setting to the more academic-oriented, rigorous elementary school years. But meeting the developmental needs of kindergarten students and successfully guiding them through this time of transition requires an approach to teaching and learning that retains the warm and playful, whole-child focused elements of the preschool years, but also engages them in deep critical thinking about relevant topics.
The 38 research-based objectives are the heart of our curriculum and define the path teachers
take with the students in their classroom. They will help kindergarten teachers focus on
supporting the development of the whole child as they plan each day and make decisions about
what to teach, the materials they select, and how they scaffold students’ learning. They inform
every aspect of teaching, include predictors of school success, and are aligned with state early
