Our Kindergarten program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. Our program provides opportunities for children from different grades to interact and develop cross-grade social relationships.
St. Thomas’s instructional program is designed to provide continuity and balance while enhancing the development of foundational skills and concepts. The intimacy of half- group instruction ensures attentiveness to each child’s maturity and achievement level. Children learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing and hearing and therefore we encourage them to explore their natural world, to collaborate with one another, and to build relationships. Creative projects, hands-on experiences, and collaborative learning opportunities inspire problem-solving and critical thinking skills – the building blocks necessary for thriving in a rapidly evolving world.
The daily curriculum incorporates the following:
- Early Math
- Social Studies
- Free choice activities
Special Subjects include the following:

Parents and guardians are a vital component of our Kindergarten program and are viewed as partners and collaborators and are recognized as the child’s first teacher.
