Our Private Kindergarten program has been designed to challenge students by providing quality instruction with a well-rounded, diversified curriculum. The balanced literacy approach by Lucy Calkins and Colleagues introduces Reading and Writing Workshops:
Interactive Read Aloud
Our math curriculum includes Math Work Stations by Debbie Diller. Math Work Stations allow students to develop conceptual understanding and skills as well as use math vocabulary as they talk about their mathematical thinking and connect big ideas to meaningful independent exploration and practice. Key concepts are based on TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills).
This diversified and well-rounded education program also takes advantage of integrated learning by using the STEAM based approach. Our students will engage in learning through journals and activities in the four specific disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These disciplines are taught in a blended learning environment, allowing us to provide the best private school education in The Woodlands, TX.
We are also excited to introduce our Promethean interactive panel. To enhance learning in the classroom, our Private Kindergarten Program utilizes an Android-based interactive wall panel that is intelligently designed for the modern classroom.
