Enrichment for the Child
Ashley Academy realizes that children at the Kindergarten level develop at differing rates. Our school allows for this variance by placing strong emphasis on individual strengths and instilling in each child a love for learning. Programs are designed to enrich the whole child, which would include social skills development and early leadership roles. Classes remain small to guarantee appropriate challenge and maximum success for each student.
Children are encouraged to develop self-confidence and self-esteem as well as respect for others and their uniqueness. Each child’s emotional, physical, social, and cognitive growth, guided through teacher and child-directed activities, is paramount in the Kindergarten program. Ashley Academy students enjoy success as they learn and gain confidence in their own abilities.
Kindergarten is a full-day program. A catered lunch is available daily at an additional charge or students may bring their lunch. Students may also bring a morning snack. Ashley Academy recommends that children entering Kindergarten should have had a year of pre-school.
