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.



Through large and small group instruction, daily routines, and independent workstations, children learn important math concepts, such as numbers, sorting, ordering, and patterns. These concepts will be explored in a more in-depth way when they get to kindergarten.


Nature and Science

This subject features hands-on learning experiences for children to explore, discover, and investigate themes including Animals, Health and Feelings; Weather/Seasons; and Plant Life Cycles.


Social Studies

Lessons in social studies focus on people, relationships, and communities. It starts with learning about yourself, then your family, your community, and the whole wide world.


Creative Arts

Children find ways to express their unique personalities, ideas, and feelings, through the use of music and movement, drama, and visual arts.


Physical Development and Health

Fine and gross motor skill development is the main focus of physical development, as children explore their environment, and learn important lessons in health and nutrition.


Critical Learning Skills

To succeed in school (and also life) there are six Critical Learning Skills for children to develop: self-regulation; the ability to follow routines; to sustain attention; to take different perspectives; to follow complex directions; and to communicate effectively.
