At Little Village Kindergarten, we believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life and all the support needed to enable them to fulfill their potential.
Our kindergarten consists of KG1 and KG2 classrooms, with a homeroom teacher and an assistant teacher for each class. Arabic teachers work with children every day while the Social worker and the Nurse work with the groups for one lesson each, twice a month through different activities.
The daily routine is a well-balance program of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities, small and large group experiences, including fine and gross motor skills building activities. In addition to learning centers and out-door activities, teacher-guided learning activities include classroom instructional time and “circle” time. Classroom instructional time focuses on personal and social skills,
phonics, literacy and numerical activities, science experiences and art projects. Circle time is a whole class activity used to build the classroom community and to encourage children to ask questions and participate in group discussions.
