  • CURRICULUM


    Kindergarten, according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, is a time for children to expand their love of learning, general knowledge, ability to get along with others and interest in reaching out to the world. Accordingly, the Tower Hill Kindergarten program provides challenging and engaging experiences for preschool students, building a strong foundation for future intellectual, physical and social development. 

    The curriculum is presented through play-oriented, hands-on learning centers that focus on the strengths, needs and interests of five- and six-year-old students. In addition to in-class core curricular instruction, Kindergarten students receive specialized instruction in physical education, music, Spanish, library, drama, cooking, science and technology with added enrichment in literacy and math.

For students needing further care, our After School program is available until 6 p.m.

 

Math Lab

Our Math Lab provides developmentally appropriate instruction for each Lower School student. In a dynamic and supportive environment, students explore mathematical concepts by using a variety of manipulative materials. They are encouraged to think of multiple solutions to ensure deeper understanding and cultivate curiosity.

The Math Lab and classroom teachers partner to provide STEM education, which refers to the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEAM education incorporates the “A” for the arts – recognizing that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills that are best developed through the arts. STEAM learning takes place both in the homeroom and during special subjects.
