Young Fives

Children enter school with a variety of experiences. We offer options to meet their individual needs. Younger learners who turn 5 between April 1 and September 1 may consider our Young 5 program. All students, including those in Young 5 kindergarten, must be five years old on or before September 1st.

We created Young 5 to support younger learners who may benefit from a transitional year. Children adjust to the social and academic demands of school in a fun, hands-on environment. Young 5 provides ‘the gift of time’ so younger learners can succeed in Kindergarten. Teachers help them develop social, motor and academic skills necessary to prosper in a regular kindergarten class. Students who complete their first year in the Young 5 program will be promoted to the regular kindergarten program the following year.

If your child is ready for a more rigorous program, then Kindergarten may be the right choice. Kindergarten moves at a faster pace than Young 5. Children should enter Kindergarten with the basic personal, social, emotional, motor and academic skills necessary to succeed in school. We know it can be a difficult decision, so we provide options to help you choose what’s best for your child.

Somos más que lo académico

Corazones y mentes fuertes impactan al mundo de maneras sorprendentes. Virtudes como el respeto, la perseverancia, la compasión y el valor son esenciales  para lo que los niños necesitan para ser exitosos y una parte esencial de lo que enseñamos. Las hacemos parte de todos los días escolares. Esto ayuda a que los estudiantes aprendan la importancia de tomar buenas decisiones y hacer lo correcto en la vida. El enfoque moral está tan integrado en todo lo que hacemos que…

  • Hemos creado un currículo específicamente con el enfoque moral en cuenta.
  • Celebramos “la virtud del mes” todos los meses.
  • Nuestros estudiantes crean un contrato para su clase donde se ponen de acuerdo sobre como tratar a su maestro y a ellos mismos.
  • Los estudiantes son reconocidos y celebrados por como viven el enfoque moral todos los días.

Padre de NHA
