Jr. Kindergarten & Kindergarten
Science & Arts Academy is committed to providing an appropriate and differentiated education for even our youngest students.
Children are guided through our Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs by faculty who are uniquely trained to manage the diverse interests, talents and developmental stages present amongst four-to six-year-old children.
Four-year-olds in Junior Kindergarten participate in enriching and engaging experiences designed to encourage their curiosity and exploration, during either our half-day or a full-day programs.
The Junior Kindergarten curriculum includes language arts development, math readiness, science exploration, social studies, artistic experiences, introduction to French and Spanish, physical education, and more. Teachers also integrate fine and gross motor activities, play, and social emotional learning.
Instruction in our Junior Kindergarten is differentiated to accommodate for varying levels of skill development, ensuring that each child is challenged at their own individual levels.
Students must be 4 years old by September 1 (of the school year) in order to be eligible for Jr. Kindergarten.
While an IQ score is not required to apply for or be accepted into the Junior Kindergarten program, children seeking admission should demonstrate an innate curiosity and desire for learning. (IQ testing is required for continuation into 1st grade.
