Welcome to Kindergarten!
St. Stephen Kindergarten program is a child-centered program providing a secure environment which assists all children to become self-confident, capable learners. The program is grounded in the religious philosophy and academic expectations of St. Stephen School. It is designed to provide students with a variety of experiences which afford them opportunities to develop academic, emotional, physical, spiritual, and social skills.
Our Kindergarten provides a loving, formal structure for prayer, reading readiness, basic math skills, scientific discovery, music, art and socialization. Students participate in daily read-alouds, reading in small groups using predictable texts and using inventive spelling during writing workshop. Our math instruction exposes students in a hands-on format to a variety of curriculum-based mathematical concepts.
