Kindergarten

4.5 years – 6 years old

(This program is for children older than 4.5 years old and younger than 6 years at the start of school year in August.)

Hummingbirds Nest Kindergarten is an extension of preschool.  Kindergarten is a partnering of new ideas within the world of the young child. The Kindergarten child has an enthusiasm for life, lives strongly in imagination and masters skills through a strong imitation of the teacher and the interaction with peers. Our curriculum mindfully prepares the child for the structures of elementary education.
