LOWER SCHOOL ACADEMIC PROGRAM
LITTLE SEEDS - For Students in Grades Pre-K through 5
Transforming the way students learn is a conscious process where the textbook-based basic academic skills mediate and adapt to new digital and visual skills with media technology. That is why our pathways cover the explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) early as a central component combined with technologically advanced ways of teaching age-appropriate programs from Preschool to the first day of kindergarten to senior year. When we encourage our children to pursue STEM, we double our future potential for innovation.
The Pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade curriculum provides students with a nurturing, exploring, stimulating curriculum, to get started on a lifetime of learning. Our project-based curriculum, offering texts, engaging activities, and online learning, helps to activate these young children's brains in a way that is beneficial at an early age. With a blend of language development, numbers, music, art & play, along with practice activities, preschoolers gain skills that ultimately help them learn to read, write, build their math and science skills. In like manner the content of language arts, science, math, and social studies help to build a strong foundation for every child of all ages to become successful students. Additionally, coding helps students learn how to plan, be organized, and improve skills in writing in a fun and exciting way.
