JK and SK
Putting your child on the path for success
The BJAMS kindergarten program has one primary goal: to ensure that our graduates are confident and have developed intellectual habits to prepare them for grade one and beyond. Our evidence-based, thoughtfully prepared curriculum promotes positive attitudes towards school and lifelong learning. Our kindergarten educators guide students towards academic readiness and emotional stability while building their social confidence and allowing them creative freedom. A BJAMS graduate is a confident learner and an empathetic citizen part of a tight-knit community.
Building confident learners
Children in this age group are intensely curious and very social. Our JK/SK program nurtures these “great brains” as they hone their social skills, develop empathy and continue on their journey towards becoming confident lifelong learners.
Montessori activities become increasingly complex and abstract as the students’ capabilities develop and grow. Our students are also given the opportunity for a higher level of creative expression through collaborative project work in their Core Knowledge classes. Educators will continually challenge students academically while remaining responsive to individual needs.
Our JK/SK classes have daily small group learning opportunities in our specialty rooms. Students are introduced to an enhanced curriculum including lessons in art, music, drama, physical education and computer science. The CV blended curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure our students are more than ready for elementary school.
