Our Transitional Kindergarten program at St. Isidore School has been developed to meet the needs of four-year-olds and young five-year-olds. It is where children will begin their learning for the tools and skills they will use for the rest of their lives. By creating a supportive and fun-filled classroom learning environment, our teachers are able to nurture and guide each child's emerging capabilities. The structured program allows for creative play, freedom to choose activities, and ‘hands on’ learning. We work in centers learning literature and math that gives students the abilities to foster their skills and get them ready for Kindergarten. These elements of the program are essential to help guide each child to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
Our Transitional Kindergarten Enrichment Program offers students weekly lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Students will experiment with different activities and crafts guided by the STEAM curriculum.
Lastly, enrichment is an optional part of the day for Transitional Kindergarten. If your child is an Early Bulldog, they may choose to stay all day in the enrichment room. If your child is a Late Bulldog, they may choose to be dropped off in the morning for enrichment. The enrichment schedule includes lunch, story time, music/movement, STEM stations, and Free Choice stations. There is one enrichment teacher and an instructional assistant with the students.
