In Kindergarten, we celebrate the uniqueness of our youngest learners! Our goal is to help your child become a capable, confident, and caring learner through a curriculum that is experience-based, interdisciplinary, and collaborative. We place great emphasis on the development of all areas of literacy; written language, spoken language, and listening. Focusing on beginning writing and reading readiness skills, we introduce our students to a wealth of literature and give them opportunities to engage in the creative process of telling their own stories. Basic math concepts are introduced and taught through interactive experiences that emphasize the use of mathematics in everyday life. This "hands on" problem-solving approach to math has proven to be both effective and enjoyable. Our program is enhanced by special subject areas that include Spanish, Physical Education, Library, and Music.
Lauren is thrilled to join the Presentation Community as a teacher this year. Lauren is a graduate of Rhodes College with a B.A. in French and Education. She holds a Master’s in Education from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College. Lauren loves teaching Kindergarten because children at this age are natural investigators full of curiosity and wonder! Outside of the classroom, Lauren can usually be found with a paintbrush in hand or exploring the Bay Area with her family.
Amy has been the Kindergarten teaching assistant at the Presentation School for 9 years. She went to Chico and Sonoma State Universities, where she studied elementary education. She truly enjoys every minute with the students. Kindergarten is such a magical age in children; their love of learning and thirst for the why and how, makes every day new and exciting for Amy. Outside of school, Amy enjoys gardening, hiking, running, photography and spending time with family and friends.
