Building a strong foundation for their child is a goal for all parents. Studies have shown that children who participate in school prior to their kindergarten year have improved social interaction skills, thrive in a setting with routines and activities, and begin to grow in a language rich environment that will benefit them for years to come.
Christ Church Day School’s Junior Kindergarten is just the place for your child to start their education. This full-day program provides children with a nurturing environment where they will develop a love for learning. This class is a key component in establishing a robust base for your child to build upon as they progress through their education.
During the school day, children learn poems and songs that strengthen their language development and prepare them for a lifetime of reading. These youngsters play cooperatively with their peers and engage in creative and dramatic play fostering their independence and sense of self. This nurturing environment is just the place for children to learn to interact with others, feel the excitement of something new, and develop a love for learning and school.
These young Christ Church Day School students also benefit from a rich arts program that allows them to experiment with different mediums while creating artwork and illustrations for the classroom. In music classes they learn about rhythm, movement, and songs as a way to express themselves. Through weekly Spanish lessons using songs and rhymes, the students begin acquiring Spanish vocabulary and culture.
Physical Education classes also helps students develop gross motor skills and learn to play cooperatively. Finally, Junior Kindergarten students participate in our Chapel services where they lead the school as we pray for our families, friends, and neighbors. It is truly a packed week of learning and fun for all!
