Faculty & Staff » Kindergarten
Mrs. Mary Newins
Our program is a busy one and includes many different kinds of activities. Through all of our activities, the children will be encouraged to develop good feelings about himself/herself, and to attempt new experiences.
Through the learning center activities, the children will have the opportunity to work individually or in small groups. During this time, they might work independently, with other Kindergarteners, or with the teacher, as they develop skills or concepts in areas such as math, pre-reading or science. Most of the activities available will be in the form of games or manipulative materials. Children will be involved in such activities as listening stations, math and color games, alphabet and phonics, experience stories and individualized work with manipulative materials.
