Kindergarten

Curiosity. Wonder. Investigation. Exploration.

St. Anne's-Belfield School Kindergarteners learn by doing, exploring the world around them and their own imaginations. Anything they become curious about could become the basis of a class Investigation: ants, sunflower seeds, even their own names. With the flexibility to follow wherever their wonders lead, our Kindergarteners are active learners building a foundation for success that will last a lifetime.

Through our social curriculum, students hone skills like teamwork, problem solving, perseverance and resilience. They learn research skills from posing questions through finding and using information to sharing what they have learned. This introduction is the gateway to student-led learning throughout our Grades K - 4 curriculum.

Being in a School serving Two-Year-Old’s through grade twelve students offers our Kindergarteners not only fellow explorers, but the opportunity to work with teammates and develop cross-divisional relationships. Each Kindergarten student is assigned a fourth grade Chapel Buddy who not only introduces them to our weekly Chapel tradition, but is available to answer any question about life in our Learning Village East Wing, like what to expect when they participate in our spring Poetry Festival. Relationships also extend even beyond our Learning Village. When our Kindergarteners investigate mixing foods, they might just learn a little something from our sophomore chemistry students in the process, and see their older friends during our Kindergarten sing-along at the Upper School in December or invite them to the Learning Village to be part of Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day.

Kindergarten at St. Anne’s-Belfield School is an exciting, energetic year full of forming questions and seeking answers. Our students are introduced to a world of fun and learning that even takes them to the moon during our annual Moon Party to complete their astronomy unit each spring.
