Lower Grades 1 - 5

During the first five years of early grades the curriculum slowly expands from the experiential learning of kindergarten to include more lesson work. The curriculum and class environments are designed to allow children to enjoy the innocence of childhood. Families are encouraged to limit media exposure to maintain healthy routines at home that allow their children to fully experience childhood without the worries and cares of adult life.

Every aspect of the curriculum is designed to inspire imagination, cultivate creativity, encourage freedom of thought and expression, and promote problem-solving.

In most cases, we like for children to be age 6 by June 1st of the year in which they begin Grade 1.
