Junior Kindergarten

The Junior Kindergarten class is designed for children who are 4 and up. This class uses the IB Primary Years Programme and is inspired by Reggio Emilia practices. Children enrolled in this class have already had significant Preschool experience, and are ready for a more guided and collaborative educational experience. Junior Kindergarten has a Spanish/English dual language immersion program.


Students regularly engage in regular reflection on their work. They actively participate in the three annual conferences: parent-teacher, parent-teacher-student, and student-led. They are confident sharing what they have learned and discussing openly the challenges and growth they are experiencing. All of this information is reflected in the student report cards.
