The Kindergarten program provides a transition between the informal learning in the home and the more formal educational programs and services offered by LCPS elementary schools, primarily focusing on instructing each student at his/her stage of development. This is accomplished by integrating the skills and understanding of all subject areas and by providing for differentiated instruction based on the needs of the students. Many manipulative and hands-on experiences are included in the program to ensure that it is developmentally consistent with the way in which five-year olds learn best. The developmental kindergarten program allows students to develop a healthy self-concept, physical skills and coordination, facilitate the use of language and to acquire fundamental skills and knowledge for reaching the student’s fullest potential.
“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” Maria Montessori
