Kindergarten is an exciting time for parents and children alike. The students are embarking on an educational journey that will continue through their high school years. It’s our intent and desire to make sure that we give them a strong foundation intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
The Kindergarten curriculum is a continuation of our Preschool programs. Strong emphasis is placed on reading, writing, spelling, and math. Students practice penmanship and have many opportunities to enjoy several types of literature. They are also exposed to advanced concepts in science and social studies which are integrated throughout the curriculum.
Our teachers at Pierce Private Day School use their experience and training to ensure that each child’s day is balanced with creative activities that help to develop thinking, reasoning, problem-solving and decision-making skills. Kindergarten is a full day program that focuses on teacher directed subjects such as reading, spelling, math and writing in the morning. The afternoon is filled with more hands-on learning experiences in science and social studies as well as our enrichment programs of art, physical education, foreign language and computers.
A Beka® Opens the Door to Success! A Beka® Christian based curriculum will continue to be the foundation of the reading program in the first few months of the year. By the end of kindergarten the majority of our students have become fluent readers.
