5K philosophy is to teach the whole child. This means that besides academics; one of the most important jobs of a kindergarten teacher is teaching the social skills children will need to become good citizens. Our curriculum is designed to address all areas of development (social, emotional, physical, and intellectual) and to meet the needs of diverse groups of learners. Children are active learners: touching, trying, moving, talking, writing, drawing, and questioning. Throughout our day the children have opportunities to explore, investigate, and predict. Even though there are increasingly more academic rigors placed upon educators; we still want to advance our students in every way possible –– and we want them to have fun doing it. We believe that every child that steps across the threshold of our classroom doors will become a success. We hold high expectations for each child in our classroom and believe that if we hold high expectations for our students they will and do strive to meet them.
