Kindergarten at BASIS Charter Schools is designed to enhance a child’s natural instincts to question, discover, and participate in the world around them. The Lead Kindergarten Teacher, together with the Kinder Teaching Fellow, facilitate opportunities for children to interact with academic, physical, and social concepts in goal-oriented activities throughout the day.
In the first half of the day, students develop their literacy and math skills, enjoy PE, and connect what they know about their environment to new ideas in civics, science, and history. Students who stay for Full-Day Kindergarten benefit from an enrichment curriculum of fine arts (music, drama, and visual art), engineering, and Mandarin language and culture. We’ve learned that children thrive on academic challenges, so our kindergarten students work toward mastering first grade skills by the end of the year. We are unique in many aspects, but the most important detail is that our kindergarten students enjoy learning!
Kindergarten at BASIS Charter Schools is an exceptional experience for all students, and it lays a critical foundation for academic success in years to come. This success is based not only on comprehension of concepts, but also on the adoption of scholarly habits in a culture that values learning above all other endeavors. We invite all prospective parents to schedule a tour, attend an information session, or contact any of our school administrators for more information on the BASIS Charter School Curriculum and our program!
