Early Childhood (PK3 through Kindergarten)

The early childhood years are an exciting time at Westminster! Our energetic and enthusiastic students engage in multi-sensory and innovative practices designed to build the strong foundation needed for all future learning. These rich experiences will shape and mold the needed brain pathways and behavioral foundations that support children’s academic, emotional and social success. Our research-based approach to these early years is purposeful, thoughtful, and child-centered.

Transitional kindergarten serves young fives who demonstrate strong school readiness skills in many areas but may need the added benefit of an additional year of social, emotional, and cognitive growth. This class offers an advanced curriculum and enrichment opportunities to appropriately challenge the students at this developmental level. Modeled on the kindergarten day, these students enjoy the same opportunities for enrichment in physical education, music, art, library skills, and special trips and celebrations.

Kindergarten (K)

2015-16KindergartenHeader
Westminster’s kindergarten program provides a caring and nurturing environment where a love of learning is initiated with a strong academic curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for the young child. We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged and enjoying themselves. This atmosphere allows for growth and development of the whole child. Kindergarten students at Westminster must be 5 years old by September 1.

In kindergarten, they enjoy the process of discovery and learning the basic building blocks of knowledge. Time is devoted to teaching appropriate classroom behavior to ensure the success of each student. Students also learn how to positively interact with classmates, teachers and the world.
