Developing a sense of community and authentic relationships is a focal point of the Early Childhood program. From a very young age, our students learn the importance of character development, emotional intelligence, and community service.
The Star Values program is a character-building curriculum that supports children as they develop into kind and caring citizens and individuals. These values are incorporated into the Early Childhood curriculum through literacy, writing, and active projects and collections throughout the year.
Opening Exercises is a daily gathering opportunity that builds a strong sense of community between students, faculty, and families. The exercises are led by the Head of Early Childhood, however, our Kindergarten students lead the Children's Poem as a part of the foundational skills of public speaking.
The Early Childhood program has many traditions that involve family throughout the school year, such as Family Bagel Breakfast, performances which include Founder's Day, the Holiday Concert, and May Day. The year concludes with a Family Fun Run and all are invited to participate!
