Our Private Kindergarten is a combination of our educational philosophy and the Utah State Office of Education Core Standards for Kindergarten. Along with the Reggio Emilia method, we use the Kindergarten and First Grade levels of the SRA Open Court Reading and Math Programs to provide a strong, well rounded Kindergarten education. The Open Court Reading program is a phonetically based program, an essential program for the Kindergarten level. Using the same program as the Salt Lake City School District, it will make for and provide a smoother transition to the First Grade. Other aspects of the curriculum will include science, social studies, penmanship, art, music and basic computer skills. Some of the many highlights of the Private Kindergarten Class: * Small class size, 1:12 * Low teacher to child ratio, less than half of the state ratio * Individual attention * Children’s participation in planning curriculum * Curriculum that reflects the children’s interests * Development of creativity and individualism * Hands-on environment * Higher level of academics * Limited school closures * There is also after-care programs available until 6:00 P.M.
