The Interboro Kindergarten Academy
The Interboro Kindergarten Academy provides a high-quality early childhood program. The nurturing child-centered environment promotes physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of young children. The kindergarten staff provides planned learning activities appropriate to the age and development of each child.
The classrooms are arranged to promote all areas of development through a variety of centers, including drama, play, art, music, science, mathematics, storytelling, block building, table toys, writing, speaking, and listening.
The kindergarten curriculum focuses on readiness skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics through a balanced literacy approach. This curriculum utilizes standards- based materials developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
The atmosphere of the Academy encourages the development of the whole child. The multi- purpose room provides opportunities for cooking, drama, and large group interaction. The child centered library and computer laboratory afford learning experiences in these areas. The outdoor classroom is a hands-on extension of the science curriculum offering exploration and discovery of the pond and surrounding habitats. Within the outdoor classroom the children gain awareness and respect for their environment. Music and physical education classes compliment the integrated curriculum, further enhancing development of the whole child. The outdoor playground provides a safe environment for active play and social development.
Parents are encouraged to be active participants in the education of their children. Workshops provide training, information, and support. This program includes writing workshop, and a variety of language experiences including reading to, with, and by children.
The Interboro Kindergarten Academy boasts a connection with community preschools and the Delaware County Intermediate Unit’s Early Intervention program to provide a smooth transition into the public school system.
Specially trained teachers and staff complete the partnership between parents, children, and community. At the Interboro Kindergarten Academy, learning is FUN for everyone!
