Kindergarten

Kindergarten classes meet Monday – Friday from 9:15 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.  Children entering this class must be 5 by September 1, 2021.

Along with our curriculum, Language Arts (Phonics, Reading, and Writing), Math (Numbers, Time-Telling, and basic arithmetic), Social Studies (Community, Early History, and Global Awareness), Science (Senses, Weather, Nature), Developmental Skills and Scripture are introduced and explored. These students will be able to experience a Bible-based, school program five days a week.

The learning experiences at The Kindergarten at Riva Trace are planned to help children move towards the objectives for their individual level. Throughout the year, we will use the curriculum to address each of these school objectives through various learning experiences. Children will be engaged in various activities to address their development intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially, creatively, and spiritually.

Language Arts Objectives

Math Objectives
