Junior Kindergarten is a special place of child-centered, teacher-directed, and activity-oriented education designed to develop young children’s spontaneous desire to learn. The program is based on a philosophy of play through which children develop self-confidence, learn to get along with others, and gain readiness skills in Phonics, Math, and Writing. Our main goal for JR Kindergarten is to help each child reach their God-given potential and gain a love for learning that will follow them all through their school years.
