Kindergarten Instruction

  • “Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their minds. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." –Marva Collins

    Our students come to school ready to learn, full of innocence, joy, and wonder. It is our role as their teacher to incorporate this love of learning into our teaching practice. We believe that all students should have access to a high-quality education through developmentally appropriate programs that foster this love of learning in a meaningful and engaging way.

    In Sunnyvale, we envision developmentally appropriate kindergarten classes as places with a nurturing environment and a climate of high expectations where:

    • There is a strong sense of community among students, staff, and families
    • Students are excited and motivated to learn
    • Teachers build a solid academic and social-emotional foundation and provide opportunities for success
    • Students engage in hands-on, meaningful learning experiences that meet their diverse needs
