"The excitement, energy and enthusiasm of the children is contagious!"

- Melody Schumacher, Kindergarten Teacher

A place where children love to learn

Kindergarten is an important year. What kids learn in kindergarten helps to build the foundation for lifelong learning. We teach kids how to read and write, how to get along with others, and how to solve problems. But more importantly, we teach kids how to love learning!

Your child will make new friends and have lots of time to play and explore the world around them. We welcome each child at their current level of ability and provide developmentally-appropriate learning activities.

Our principal and kindergarten teachers introduce themselves and warmly welcome you to our school community.

"I love teaching kindergarten because of our students' whole-hearted excitement for learning and sweetly genuine interactions with each other!"

– Sara Tate, Kindergarten teacher
