It starts by offering your child one more year …

This program provides your child with an extra year to gain the confidence and social skills. It is our goal to help your child develop a love for learning. We offer certified teachers and a nurturing, engaging learning environment to help lay a strong foundation and build future school success.

What the Research Says

According to a study co-authored by Stanford Graduate School of Education professor Thomas Dee, children who start kindergarten on a delayed schedule show significantly lower levels of inattention and hyperactivity, which are jointly considered key indicators of self-regulation. Self-regulation is commonly linked to student achievement. When tested for hyperactivity and inattention, Dee’s research shows the children who started at age 6 had 73 percent better outcomes than those who started at age 5.

Goals of this Program

This program focuses on “whole-child” development. We will nurture your child’s social and emotional development and meet them where they are when it comes to academic learning.

We want to teach your child HOW to learn and set them on the path towards becoming a competent life-long learner. We do this by encouraging their innate sense of curiosity about the world around them, and presenting new topics in engaging ways that allow for hands-on exploration. It is our goal to help your child develop the necessary skills for future success, including: problem-solving skills, conflict-resolution, communication skills, decision-making skills, collaboration, critical thinking, and self-motivation.

Curriculum

We offer a research-based curriculum that aligns with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Kindergarten (TEKS). Our schedule includes weekly opportunities for chapel, music and movement, physical education, and foreign language instruction. Certified teachers and a small class-size offers your child highly individualized attention. We believe that children learn by doing, exploring, touching, hypothesizing, and moving their bodies. Therefore, our classrooms are set-up with interest centers and teachers take a play-based approach to introducing new concepts. Plenty of time outdoors playing, gardening, and discovering nature rounds out each day.
