Kindergarten


For kindergarten students, the world is their playground. With the help of their incredible teachers, the children find that there is much to discover and so much to learn and explore. Unlike young preschoolers, kindergartners have a longer attention span in which to do their research and master their skills. Recently, as they studied life cycles, the students asked to have ladybugs and butterflies in their classroom. Responding to their students’ interest, the teachers added a second week to this theme and, of course, brought in the requested insects! In the Kindergarten Classroom, there are numerous opportunities for multi-day projects. With the excitement of these young learners and their ability to focus for longer periods of time, the options are limitless!

Students continue to attend art, Spanish, technology, and music classes on a regular basis and they go on exciting field trips each month in keeping with the curriculum theme. Occasionally, students are given homework to allow parents an opportunity to help their children develop skills. Homework also gives parents the opportunity to experience with their child what they are doing in the classroom. Portfolios are kept for each child with samples of their work. In addition, report cards and evaluations are given on a semi-annual basis.

We offer a full-day private Kindergarten Program at both BeanTree Learning | Westfields and The Pavilion at BeanTree.
