Kindergarten

The Kindergarten program at Rummel Creek provides a developmentally appropriate, integrated curriculum that enhances the "whole child.”  Our goal is to create self-motivated, life-long learners while providing a nurturing and safe environment.  Our classrooms are discovery-oriented, print-rich and arranged in learning stations. Our children visit health fitness, music, art, and computer lab weekly. They have opportunities to reinforce concepts each day through the use of technology in the classroom. 
Children engage in varied, meaningful learning experiences and hands-on activities enabling them to develop a sense of ownership for their learning.  We focus on problem-solving and choice-making.  We provide instruction for all learning styles and individual needs.  The teacher, parent, and child work together as a team to ensure the child's success and well- rounded development.
