Kindergarten

We offer a full day Kindergarten. Our kindergarten curriculum is integrated and
introduces topics that spark childrens’ curiosity, interest and enthusiasm. We believe each child should be appreciated and accepted at the level of his/her own maturity and ability. We provide an atmosphere that involves active learning in a structured environment. We believe that a partnership with both parents and staff creates a foundation for successful learning.

We follow the New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards for Kindergarten. We utilize the Scott Foresman math and reading curriculum, the most widely used curriculum.
