This was our first year experiencing the Heritage Kindergarten, having sent our first two children to public Kindergarten. Our experience at Heritage was superb - a much more positive experience than what our public school provided.          Heritage parent

"Heritage considers the individual child as they grow in mind and spirit. Through play and creative academics my child was prepared above and beyond for first grade."

In keeping with the school's developmentally appropriate philosophy, a child's acceptance into the Kindergarten Program is based on a readiness assessment.  The screening is administered in the Spring.

Our Kindergarten curriculum includes:

         Land of The Letter People, Abrams & Company Publishers, Inc.

         Everyday Mathematics, McGraw Hill; The Wright Group

         Digi-Block, Inc., Elon Kohlberg - University of Chicago

         Handwriting Without Tears, Jan Z. Olsen

         Heritage School Discovery Garden - an outdoor classroom experience.

LAND OF THE LETTER PEOPLE is an all-encompassing Kindergarten program designed to provide a thorough preparation for early success in reading.  The program builds skills in all three cueing systems (semantic, syntactic, and graphophonic) in an environment that captures the imagination of children and develops appreciation for, and ability to function in, both spoken and written language.  LAND OF THE LETTER PEOPLE emphasizes phonemic awareness, print awareness, understanding the alphabetic principle, letter recognition, and the use of initial consonants and medial vowels in reading and writing words.

The DIGI-BLOCK system gives students a solid grounding in the concepts of place value, number value, grouping, counting and more.  DIGI-BLOCK develops meaning through a consistent mathematical model.  This method propels students' math skills forward, preventing re-teaching in later grades.
