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, listelistening.
The kindergarten curriculum focuses on readiness skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics aligned with the common core standards. This curriculum utilizes standards-based materials that have been researched and provided by the district’s Office of Curriculum and Instruction.
The atmosphere of the Kindergarten Academy encourages the development of the whole child. The multi-purpose room and gym provide locations for large and small 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 for all of the students.
Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s learning program by reviewing daily work, communicating with the teachers and support staff and attending parent evenings such as Back to School Night and literacy and math events.
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!
