HMS Kindergarten – 5 years of age by Sept 30th
HMS offers a full day Kindergarten program or an afternoon kindergarten enrichment program. Children who attend morning kindergarten at LCPS can benefit from our afternoon kindergarten enrichment program.
Our kindergarten program offers a challenging and comprehensive curriculum to ensure that each child receives the individualized attention needed to excel. The full day program consists of a multi-age classroom experience each morning, followed by an exclusive kindergarten experience in the afternoon.
At HMS, academic subjects are introduced through concrete materials. There is a great emphasis on having the children use these manipulative, which lay down the groundwork for future abstract learning and thinking.
One significant and important difference between what HMS offers kindergarteners and what is offered by many more traditional programs is how we help the young child “learn how to learn”. Our focus is on teaching for understanding.
