The Kindergarten program offers multi-sensory curriculum in a small group setting. The curriculum is designed to meet individual needs while achieving developmental milestones important for entering first grade the following year. Using self-check lists for daily responsibilities that require independence is key (e.g. morning sign-in, estimation, labeling lunches). Like all Wimpfheimer programs, there is an emphasis on fostering language development, and expanding socialization, problem solving and conflict resolution skills. Reading, writing, math and science literacy are part of the children’s daily schedule. Creativity and self-expression are part of the integrated curriculum, which blends these various methodologies through play.
