Programs for Grades 1-4

Children are more willing to try new things and take risks when teachers and peers support them. Our Kindergarten through 4th-Grade programs focus on student responsibility, purpose, and spirit to ensure they encourage and support each other every day. 
Students learn to ask questions, make discoveries, and find answers for themselves. We encourage them to lead by engagement, conversation, and speaking in front of others. And woven into a mastery of reading, writing, and mathematics is a concentration on problem-solving, critical thinking, and creative expression. 
A social curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum. To build a close-knit student community, each classroom starts its day with a morning meeting as part of our Responsive Classroom approach to create a caring, supportive student body. This social focus supports all learners and encourages the consideration of all viewpoints and opinions. 
Every student has a unique learning method. To meet this need, teachers collaborate as a team to support our students' growth and strive to differentiate our curriculum wherever possible.
After all, we care for our children's development, and cultivating their love of learning brings us great joy.
