HEAD OF SCHOOL

A magical time in a child's life, Kindergarten provides a rich and lively learning experience. Please take time to learn more about the pillars of the Kindergarten curriculum and the overarching philosophy of this engaging year. I welcome you here to watch more on this page and see how the Waterford experience continues into Kindergarten to stimulate intellect, ignite passion and shape character. We anticipate the material on this page to take approximately 25 minutes to read and watch.

KINDERGARTEN COUNTS

Waterford's Kindergarten program is designed to nurture a diverse community of learners with well-developed social skills. The Kindergarten classroom is a rich and lively environment where the joy of learning is central to the experience of each child. Kindergarten teachers take great care to provide developmentally-appropriate materials for children so that all are challenged, actively involved, and become confident in their abilities as lifelong learners.​​​​​​​
