Kindergarten Program

Age Group 5 years to 6 years

At Castle Pines Academy the experiences and environment are tailored to meet each student's unique needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas. The small class size allows for personalized instruction in a way that is not possible in a large classroom of a public school. In practice, this means each child has an opportunity to read with the teacher every day. Students receive timely feedback on their work, and spend minimal time waiting for the teacher's assistance if they experience difficulty.

The smaller class size also allows the teacher to implement a developmentally appropriate curriculum for the students. At CPA, students spend the majority of their day actively engaged with manipulative materials, allowing them to construct their knowledge from experiences that are meaningful to them. The teacher guides the children's inquiry in a way that allows them to reach their full potential.

Choosing the best kindergarten placement for your child can be a daunting task. Public school? Private school? Each comes with a distinct set of advantages and disadvantages. Clearly, the goal is to determine which environment will best meet the needs of your child. Ultimately, you can make the best decision if you identify your child's unique personality and preferred learning style, identify the philosophies of the schools, and make the best match between the two.
