HOLY GUARDIAN ANGELS
Holy Guardian Angels Regional School’s Kindergarten provides experiences that offers students the chance to immerse themselves in religion and academics. The students practice their skills and faith in an environment of love and understanding. The emphasis is placed everyday that God is great and He loves everyone of us.
Our full-day kindergarten program provides a strong academic foundation in literacy and math. Language and listening skills are emphasized through phonemic awareness, letter recognition and formation, vocabulary development, grammar and oral and written communication. Through the use of manipulatives, students will represent and compare whole numbers. Students will learn how to describe shapes and space. Also, students will begin to develop the process of problem solving by choosing and utilizing effective strategies they have learned.
Reading and math instruction is differentiated through guided reading and guided math to meet each learner’s academic needs in a small group setting. Technology is used to enhance and personalize our academic curriculum through one to one Chromepads.
Kindergarten students are given the opportunity to strengthen their creative skills by experiencing art, music, physical education, and STEM classes each week. Our kindergarteners engage in discovery learning through play which allows them to grow in their ability to make choices, participate actively in learning and accept the consequences. Students develop a positive appreciation of God, self and others. Our students develop appropriate behaviors, attitudes, values and knowledge about physical, social, intellectual and spiritual well-being. Students entering Kindergarten must be five-years-old by October 15 of the current academic year. Kindergarten screening occurs in the spring.
