Kindergarten Program


Kindergarten forms the basic building blocks of literacy and arithmetic. NYC students can apply for kindergarten in the year they turn five. In this grade, students will:

  • learn the alphabet (including sounds of letters, words, pronunciations).

  • share ideas and feelings through speech, drawing, writing.

  • explore music, movement, and playmaking.

  • identify numbers and count up to 100.

  • add and subtract numbers up to 10.

  • learn about family, school, and community members.

  • study plants and animals, and identify certain materials (for example metal and wood) and their characteristics.
