The kindergarten program at Holy Family School is committed to providing the developmental building blocks that contribute to our students’ intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical growth. In addition to our core curricular program, our kindergarten students experience music, computers, Spanish, Meet the Masters art program, and a spirituality program that reinforces our important virtues, such as respect, love, prayerfulness and faith.
Our kindergarten is divided into two classes, each with a full time teacher and aide. This configuration allows us to provide greater individual attention to support each student’s learning. In the morning, students work primarily in centers that incorporate language arts and math. In the afternoon, the classes work on science, social studies and religion. The school day also consists of fun and developmentally appropriate activities including show and tell, songs, movement, painting, and building blocks.
Holy Family School’s kindergarten program provides the best learning environment and promotes all areas of development that support the whole child as they become lifelong learners.
- Language Arts – Strategies from Houghton Mifflin with a standard based balanced literacy program (Shared, guided, and independent reading and writing)
