Kindergarten to 5th Grade

The Perfect Balance of Fun & Learning

Customized Learning

  • We plan our lessons and activities to meet each child's strengths and needs. 

  • We communicate often with parents to identify growth and plan next steps.

  • Children learn to manage their learning and gain self-confidence.

Challenging Lessons

  • We plan for the right balance of rigorous learning and good fun.

  • We teach with an inquiry-based approach. Children learn to ask questions, find answers, and think critically.

  • Children learn to read and write beyond all expectations.

Small Groups

  • We separate the children into small groups of 2 to 8 for focused learning activities.

  • The teachers work with each small group independently.

  • The children may get the same work or different work, depending on their ability and interests. 

  • In this way, the children learn concepts quickly and internalize them deeply.

Hands-on Activities

  • For math, at all age levels, we use hands-on tools, games, and projects, so the children can process how math works.

  • In science, we do experiments first and the discussions after, so the children can discover the properties of science for themselves.

  • Children learn and remember everything better when they are active.

Advanced Math Options

  • From kindergarten through fifth grade, we do at least 50 minutes of math per day.

  • All children have the opportunity to work at math on-level or above level. 

  • Advanced students may work in a high group in their classroom, or they may work with the children in the next grade up.
