A Typical Day in Kindergarten at St. Mary

Kindergarten at St. Mary is a very special year full of many learning experiences. Each day begins with a morning meeting, which is built on a daily routine that teaches math, literacy, movement, listening, and speaking skills. Through hands-on learning centers, our teachers are able to work with small groups of children, allowing for more individualized instruction. Learning centers focus on the core subjects: Reading, Phonics, Math, Writing, and Word Work. The St. Mary Kindergarten program balances the academic knowledge that is foundational for future learning with the sensory and motor experiences that are so vital for a child’s development. The Kindergarten students have recess and then eat lunch in the cafeteria. The afternoon includes continued learning with a focus in Social Studies or Science, Writing, and Religion. There is also a short rest time, afternoon snack, and cooperative play. Each day is fun and exciting for our young, active learners!
