Kindergarten program

b-41-239229_630x298CKA staff will assist your kindergartener in becoming a more self-reliant decision-maker who sets and reaches goals to become a confident member of our learning community. The kindergarten age is a time of great possibility for success in multi-step activities. Developmentally, your child may be ready to properly hold a writing utensil. Thus, our schedule provides time to capitalize on writing practice and artistic expression through creative media. Your child will also be exposed to more abstract concepts like number recognition and understanding time and the calendar. Dramatic play, hands-on exploration, and musical activities are creative staples of our kindergarten schedule.
