Kensington’s full-day kindergartens provide the essential bridge from preschool to 1st grade. Our highly qualified teachers focus on building a strong foundation in core skills that will give children the academic confidence leading to future school success. With this as our goal, our teachers create classrooms of purposeful hands-on learning based on our accelerated program.
From the introduction of math concepts to a language arts program rich in phonics, reading strategies, and writing skills, Kensington is dedicated to developing confident, poised, life-long learners. Our students benefit from individualized teacher attention and an extended schedule that allows them ample time to reinforce new skills.
Kindergartners participate in educational field trips, school assemblies, and many creative art projects. Kensington’s monthly thematic units broaden student’s knowledge while reinforcing core skills. Working collaboratively as well as independently, they share and learn from each other. By communicating, sharing ideas and solving problems, students develop both intellectually and socially.
Kensington School believes connecting school learning with home learning is essential. Daily communication between parents and teachers enhances this connection. Teachers provide monthly homework calendars and invite family participation in the Book Buddy Reading Program and Words of the Week.
Smaller class size and the opportunity for individualized attention, combined with a proven curriculum and dedicated teachers, sets Kensington’s full-day kindergarten far above the academic standards of a traditional half-day program.
