Junior Kindergarten

Explore. Learn. Play.

Junior kindergarten boys engage in activities that encourage the development of social and emotional skills needed to enter kindergarten the following year with self-confidence and independence. The program focuses on developmentally appropriate cognitive language and mathematics skills infused with science, Spanish, art, music, physical education, and outdoor play. The integrated curriculum is based on how boys learn best and allows boys to make meaningful connections in their learning.

Our renowned faculty understands that boys need to be cared for on every level. With a focus on kindergarten readiness, Junior Kindergarten boys will develop the academic, social, and emotional skills needed to enter kindergarten the following year with self-confidence and independence. Take advantage of launching your son's lifetime love of learning, in our Junior Kindergarten program!
