“Drop the ego, trust the child.

In our commitment to providing a  deeply personal and meaningful education to the children under our roof, we are taking the leap to create a Kindergarten experience that will provide a Common Ground of best practices in education to meet the needs of every child. 

 

Project Based Learning Cycle

  Students benefit from a learning cycle designed to engage them in a personal and meaningful way exciting their best talents and using those to improve on their deficits.

Blended Learning

  Students are given the agency to document their own learning using an application called SeeSaw. Students will engage with inline activities used to assess in real-time the understanding and retention of new concepts and processes.

In an effort to provide each interested family the utmost transparency, we decided to document our process of creation of our Kindergarten! Each week you will find updates here that give you a bit of insight into exactly what we are thinking and how are process of learning will adapt to each learner. In this “episode” we chat about how we will organize our children’s work and document their achievements. The big discovery here was leveraging an app called “Trello” to correlate the activities in their classroom to the County requirements for K, 1st and 2nd. The reason there is a “grade gap” here is because we know that as a standard in our classrooms, children function in certain areas sometimes two or three grade levels higher. We want to be able to meet those needs as well as the needs of a child with deficits. In most cases this can be the same child!

Enjoy the view into our Tuesday meeting! -

Tuesday, October 23rd - In this meeting we discuss further the organization of the child’s competencies and work to achieve them. We also discuss in depth the language curriculum and what materials and philosophies we will use in the approach to serve each child. If you can;t tell, we love this stuff..
