At Veritas students begin learning the basics (we call these basics “the grammar”) of Math, Bible, and Reading. Kindergartners have a lot of fun learning, because they are constantly singing, chanting, clapping, and dancing while learning their subjects!
Letters and sounds (phonics), reading, math facts, spelling rules, handwriting, Bible and history, catechism, and fine arts make up the core of our kindergarten curriculum. Plus, the dual-level castle in classrooms adds an extra special element to the students' days, as they are guided through their reading and phonics lessons by Sir Percival the boy knight! Special field trips, dress-up days (like our Masquerade Ball!), and traditions make it a memorable, joyful experience.
Our teacher, Mrs. Lake, has been teaching Kindergarten at Veritas for over 15 years and provides an excellent balance of nurturing kindness and strong classroom management. Her expertise and her care for the children is a blessing to our families and our kids!
Veritas offers half and full day kindergarten. All kindergarteners must attend the morning session from 8:00am-12:00pm. However, families may also opt to send their child to our afternoon kindergarten session following the morning session. The afternoon session is from 12:00-2:50 p.m. and will include enriching activities, leisure/rest time, and academic reinforcement from the morning sessions. You may sign up your child for full day kindergarten for the whole year, or you may send your child to the afternoon session a la carte for certain days as the need arises.
