SMA KINDERGARTEN ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
2020-2021 Kindergarten Enrichment Program Overview
Spring Meadows Academy Kindergarten Enrichment program is a two day a week class designed to offer hands-on learning opportunities for homeschooled Kindergarten children. Children are nurtured and taught by experienced teachers in a small, structured classroom setting where social interaction is encouraged.
This program is designed to offer Kindergarten students enriching experiences that will supplement their homeschool studies. Children will have opportunities for reading and writing, asking questions, seeking answers, critical thinking, and hands-on experiments.
The Kindergarten Enrichment class will follow the same calendar as the SMA Preschool with monthly letter, number, color, shape and theme focus. The topics will be taught using center based teaching and will highlight Reading, Math, Social Studies and Science. This class will also offer daily Bible instruction and the opportunity to participate in SMA’s weekly Music, PE and Chapel, as well as any in-house field trip experiences.
At Spring Meadows Academy, we value the close ties between children and their families and believe the majority of instruction and learning should come from the home environment. The relationship with our families is extremely important. We encourage communication with the classroom teacher and welcome your feedback.
