What makes kindergarten so special at HBS? Our children learn through play. Creating stories, playing dress-up, and digging in the sand are actually helping your child develop and refine his or her ability to think creatively and work collaboratively. Learning social skills and fostering curiosity and wonder are the most important building blocks your child will gain in these early years of education.

 

Our five and six year-old learners are encouraged to explore and navigate the world, a world which goes beyond the boundaries of the classroom. A child’s day may entail a trip to the campus beehive to learn about pollinators, or a canned food drive to support a local food bank. Children will learn shapes and objects, numbers and counting, writing, letters and sounds. In addition, we build their enthusiasm and confidence in learning, while also instilling lifelong social skills, personal responsibility, and principles of citizenship.

 

For the 2018 – 2019 school year, we are streamlining the application and screening process for all new kindergarten students.  Learn more about how to apply here.
