Comprehensive Curriculum and Knowledge Areas

In the Junior Kindergarten classroom, your child spends their time gaining the necessary academic and social-emotional skills for kindergarten success. We provide a comprehensive curriculum, enabling students to gain skills and knowledge in these important subject areas:

Language & Literacy

These experiences include naming all the letters (upper- and lowercase) of the alphabet, correctly placing sounds in order, reading and writing short words, as well as additional experiences in early writing, reading, vocabulary, and communication.
