Lamb's Gate offers Kinder Bridge and Kindergarten classes. It is currently a combination class. The difference between learning occurs when the teacher works with the students in small groups. Differentiated instruction is used to challenge the students where they are at.
Our Kinder Bridge class is a half day program that meets five days a week. This unique program was started to give students one more year of development before they enter a full day kindergarten program.
It is a wonderful fit for students who turn five in the summer or early fall or for those who might benefit from a half day program over a full day program. Kinder Bridge uses Handwriting Without Tears curriculum along with literature-based lessons that incorporate all different subject areas.
Our half day kindergarten class meets Monday through Friday from 8:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This class uses Purposeful Design, Saxon Math curriculum, and Hooked on Phonics as the basis for teaching the core academic subjects.
These foundation curricula are coordinated with themed, teacher-planned lessons and a variety of supplementary activities. Learning is hands-on and highly integrated between subject areas. Students also participate in excellent enrichment options, including art, music, physical education, library, Spanish, and on occasion, educational field trips.
*Kindergarten qualifies for tax credits through ACSTO and IBE, however, Kinder Bridge does not as it is not intended to be Kindergarten, but a bridge to future kindergarten.
