Kindergarten Info

Welcome to Kindergarten!  At Central, kindergarten teachers work together to focus on the whole child – academically, emotionally, socially and physically. Our curriculum has adhered to the California State Standards and is now beginning the transition to the rigorous Common Core Standards. We strive to reach every child's academic potential, but we also find ways every day to give our children opportunities to play, to make social connections, to become independent and responsible, and to explore their creativity.

“Kindergarten at Central rocks” says a student who just finished painting Monet’s water lily pond and Japanese footbridge. While Central kindergarteners spend time learning reading and writing strategies, math skills, as well as science and social studies concepts, they also spend the year investigating some of the great artists of the world. From Monet to Van Gogh…O’Keeffe to Matisse…students get to know the artists’ life histories, what inspired them and what art techniques made them unique. The children broaden their world through exploration and experimentation of art techniques and through art appreciation.

Students, teachers and parents agree: Kindergarten really does rock at Central!
