Kindergarten is the launch pad for your child’s school career! At Bear Canyon, our program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn and practice the essential social, emotional, problem-solving, and study skills that will be used throughout their school career.. Kindergarten not only boosts students' academic achievement, it also strengthens their social and emotional skills and self esteem.
At Bear Canyon we focus on:
Expanding your child’s ability to learn about (and from) the world, organize information, and solve problems. This increases feelings of self-worth and confidence, the ability to work with others, and interest in challenging tasks.
Providing a combination of formal (teacher-initiated) and informal (child-initiated) activities. Investigations and projects allow your child to work both on their own and in small groups.
Minimizing the use of large group activities that require sitting. Instead, most activities feature play-based, hands-on learning in small groups. As the year progresses, large group activities become a bit longer in preparation for 1st grade.
Fostering a love of books, reading, and writing. There are books, words, and kids’ own writing all over the classroom.
