Senior Kindergarten lays the foundation for academic success and a growing sense of confidence throughout the school years by providing a holistic introduction of skills and concepts. It is important that the students feel safe and secure from the very beginning of their school years. The Senior Kindergarten classroom is a loving and nurturing environment for young children under the care and guidance of two educators to ensure a low student to teacher ratio. One lead educator and one assistant provide adult guidance and support to our young learners. We believe that every child is unique, and therefore, we strive to provide opportunities for each student to develop and grow at a rate that is developmentally appropriate for them.
Senior Kindergarten at CCDS is a full day school experience. In addition to daily explorations in literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies, we also provide specialty classes for Spiritual Nurture, Music, Art, Spanish, and Physical Education throughout the week.
In Senior Kindergarten, the students are learning social, emotional, physical, and academic skills that they will use for life. Teachers at CCDS believe children learn best by doing, and they will use these experiences as building blocks for acquiring new skills. By providing a wide variety of activities and opportunities to learn, the children will be on their way to developing a lifelong love of learning.
