Mrs. Dougherty's Class
Welcome to Kindergarten!
Going to kindergarten is an important step for your child. It will help them learn skills that they will build on throughout their life.
At kindergarten your child will grow socially and emotionally. Their ability to think, use and recognise language and their fine motor skills will be developed through play, art, dance, music, movement and interacting with others. Most importantly, your child will be learning to become an effective learner as they develop and extend their communication skills, build their self-confidence, learn to be creative, and develop skills that assist them with reading, writing and mathematics.
Our program is based on:
· High engagement with age appropriate expectations for all learners
· A caring and supportive community
· Organized learning environment
· Balanced daily routine
· Developmentally based curriculum aligned with the California Content Standards
