Quick Facts

First grade is full day 8:20-2:20 while Kindergarten is 4 hours 8:20-12:20

Four teachers weave together for our first and kindergarten classes! One teaches literacy, one teaches math, one teaches Social Thinking and a fourth teacher embeds art, music, science and woodworking into the classroom for extended day 1st graders.

Our kindergarten has 8-10 students and our first grade has 5-6 students mixed in the same class and differentiated for Math, Literacy and Social Thinking curriculums.

Our Kindergarten and first grade (K1) uses the outdoors as the springboard for so much of our curriculum! Our K1 students spend at least half their day in the outdoors, exploring, learning and playing. While there is much focus given to student-to-student interactions, the Eureka Math, Orton-Gillingham, Social Thinking and Tools of the Mind program offers peer to peer, small group and even one on one time with the teacher.

Our curriculum is a research-based early childhood model combining teacher professional development with a comprehensive innovative curriculum that helps young children to develop the cognitive, social-emotional, self-regulatory, and foundational academic skills they need to succeed in school and beyond.
