The Trevose Day School Kindergarten program consists of 1 section, with approximately 15-18 children per section. Our curriculum focuses on establishing basic intellectual foundations while nurturing self-confidence, critical thinking skills, independence, and positive social interaction.
Because students begin Kindergarten at various stages of readiness, our faculty utilizes a pragmatic approach that accommodates each child’s needs and ability. Teachers communicate regularly with parents and check-in daily with students to ensure that the latter are comfortable and content with intellectual and social challenges of classroom life.
Children are introduced to reading, writing, language arts and more advanced creative and cultural activities, while continuing to develop perceptual and motor skills. At this stage of learning, children also begin practicing informal public speaking, which establishes the self-esteem necessary for active class participation. The Kindergarten program also places an emphasis on the development of interpersonal skills, such as empathy, respect, self-awareness, cooperation, and an embrace of cultural and ideologically diversity.
