STEM - Kindergarten enrichment

Kindergarten Program - A small investment… lifelong returns St. Mark’s Kindergarten enrichment program is highly recognized. Our goal is to help children successfully begin their academic journey in a warm, caring environment. With a small teacher per student ratio, children have the one-on-one attention they deserve. Children are taught multiple strategies, which set the foundation for all further learning. Guided toward working independently, children follow multi-step directions. Daily learning activities stress speaking, listening, reading, writing, illustrating, observing, and experiencing. Teachers remain flexible to accommodate the individual needs of each unique child.
