Benefits of Our Kindergarten
Our experienced Kindergarten teachers personally know the needs of each student, because we diliberately hold our classs isze to a maximum of 14 students in each class. Your child will be encouraged as an individual: socially, emotionally, and academically. This will be a far different experience than public schools can offer. Public schools routinely put 23 – 26 children in a class. In our school, individual interests and questions are encouraged and incorporated into daily studies.
Each year we welcome students with a range of knowledge, from beginning readers on up. Each student will dramatically improve with the daily investment of our teachers. Within the first two months, students are writing in full sentences within their publishing journals.
In Kindergarten, students have instructional time with our art, physical education, Spanish, music, and library specialists. Your family will have extra experiential learning opportunities: field trips to agricultural and marine science locations, and to Mt. Baker Theater.
Students enjoy a STEM block where they get to invent, be creative, and discover more about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers. We have “buddies” at different grade levels, to share this special emphasis, including Middle School Tech Buddies.
You have opportunities for lots of formal and informal communication with the teacher, including a daily note sent home about the happenings of the day. We encourage communication among our families, too.
You will appreciate the continued emphasis on achievement, leadership, moral and spiritual development that provides your child with confidence and positive direction. As you know, The Franklin Academy is more than a fine academic school; it’s a nurturing and supportive community.
The investment you are making will be of long-term positive benefit for your child. The early years are crucial, and foundational. We are proud to offer your child a strong foundational educational year to keep on their wonderful path of academic, social, and spiritual success.
