The Jr. Kindergarten program is designed for those student who are not eligible for kindergarten due to a late birthday or parents feel that their child could benefit from another year of preschool. Our JK class goes beyond what is taught in a fours class and students are given kindergarten lessons. The Creative Curriculum Developmental Continuum and Writing without Tears are the foundation for the learning activities, but also the Common Core Standards used in the Kentucky Schools for Kindergarten and first grade are applied. Moving towards twenty-first curriculum is the focus in this class. STEM projects enrich this class and students are exposed to technology used in educational classrooms. The Smartboard has enhanced this classroom and added a new dimension to learning for our students.
