Embedded Image for:  (20169913481915_image.bmp) Kindergartners at North Ridge participate in a nurturing, exploratory and developmentally - appropriate environment. The full-day program enables the children to become involved in many “hands-on” experiences. They gain knowledge while learning to work and play in a happy and fun place.

The Kindergarten curriculum is an integrated thematic approach to learning. Kindergartners will explore pre-reading activities and come to an understanding of letter/sound relationships through literature and predictable patterned text. The children will engage in math activities while using manipulatives to explore concepts. The ENVISION Math Program will enable them to learn concepts---numbers, graphing, sorting, and much more.

New technology offers opportunities to access the Internet to visit different places. The children will gain knowledge and understanding of themselves, the family, the community, and more.

Kindergartners will experience taking field trips within the community as well as in the classroom. Attending a play and going to the Supermarket during Nutrition Week will provide the children with first hand experiences. They will also have an opportunity to have land animals and seashore animals visit in their classroom.

Parents will be invited to read to their child’s class throughout the year. Children who become book buddies with an older class will enrich the love for reading as well as do activities with the Kindergartners. A foundation for a community of caring through ongoing personal attention to human developmental needs of the children and the success of each child will be an important part of everyday.
