The kindergarten program establishes the academic foundation for the rest of a child’s life at Village School. Children are introduced to Reader's and Writer's Workshops, models that allow for student voice and enthusiasm to grow while cultivating their understanding of these key facets of literacy. Children are exposed to a number of mathematical concepts through the Everyday Math program. Children also compare and contrast nine nations as part of a global exploration. During the school year kindergarteners travel to three continents, visiting three countries within each continent. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) units also introduce our students to the hands-on exploration and lines of inquiry that define our science program in the other grades.
