Kindergarten

Our goals in Kindergarten are to help kids recognize numbers up to one hundred, begin telling time, do basic addition and subtraction, and acquire a strong phonics foundation for reading. By winter, most children will be sounding out words and reading sentences. We also cultivate a love for God and the assurance that God loves them.
