My child just finished kindergarten, and had a wonderful experience. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, creative, and to me, really what a kindergarten should be. It has a wonderful mix of history, art, language, movement, music, crafts, and physical activity. Nature blends in perfectly with the class curriculum. For example, the class incubated chicken eggs, observed changes, watched them hatch, recorded observations, then sent chicks back to the farm. With 2 teachers for 16 students, the kindergarten teachers were easily able to provide differentiated instruction. School, teacher, and parent communication were excellent. There is a nice variety of afterschool activities, although no organized sports teams. The only true drawback for me is that the school does not have a real gym. But overall, my child is looking forward to 1st grade and beyond.
