kindergarten philosophy
Kindergarten Philosophy
  • In District 47 we believe that the foundation of successful schooling is formed during the kindergarten year through the development of positive attitudes and learning habits. We recognize that each child enters kindergarten with a unique background of experiences. Therefore, the child’s kindergarten experience should be the cooperative effort of the child, parent and teacher. The curriculum is designed to support the academic, social, emotional and physical growth of the child. The instructional program is activity and language oriented, providing a secure and accepting environment, which motivates each child to use skills when developmentally ready. School personal and parents working together will provide for the individual development of the whole child.
