5 to 6 year-olds
Kindergarten is a big year for young students—full of personal growth, academic milestones, and self-discovery. They become more engaged in the learning process and develop confidence as they recognize their own abilities.
Ready, Set, Grow!
Kindergarten sets the stage for years of education to come. Students make strides in every subject and are asked to participate in new ways. They share ideas, engage in discussion, and work in groups. In a stimulating, hands-on program, young minds thrive.
Lessons build in complexity, with the flexibility to adapt to students’ individual skills, interests, and needs. Growth is fast and exciting!
As students begin to read, write, and conquer academic subjects, we also nurture self-expression, creative thinking, and unique interests.
Our teachers create a safe space for every child to ask questions, share ideas, and feel like they belong. Kindness is our culture.
And now, they’re reading and writing! Our students show tremendous growth in language and literacy, practicing:
- Phonemic Awareness
- Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation
- Reading Comprehension / Discussion
- Story Mapping
- Vocabulary & Context Clues
- Oral Language

Kindergarten follows a standard academic calendar (August – June). Students report to class five days a week, for a full day in the classroom.
All of our elementary school programs are broken into three academic periods with two recess breaks.
- Hours: 8:30 – 2:45 pm
- Options for Extended Care
At Action Day, learning goes beyond academics. Our enrichment programs are designed to help students develop unique interests and talents—without ever leaving campus. Several options are available to elementary students:
