** On Friday we invite parents into our room as guest teachers and do many activities ranging from Spanish lessons to science experiments. We teach thematically, so on any given Friday we may also spend the day furthering our exploration of those themes.
Half-Day Kindergarten: Why a half day?
Half-day kindergarten offers children balance. The classroom is one place where learning occurs. Children take the explorations and questions from the morning’s classroom experience and continue learning in the home environment.
