''My daughter's  desire to learn grew after just a few short weeks  in the classroom. She was reading better, writing better and eager to learn math. "

The Education

Accredited – We are fully accredited by the Association of Independent Schools of Florida and The  National Council for Private School Accreditation.

Curriculum– Our curriculum is grounded in well researched and proven teaching practices from leading researchers in the field of Early Childhood Education. We follow the Florida Standards for English Language Arts and Math, so students are fully prepared for 1st grade. We teach these standards following our Tree Top Approach to Learning by using Project Based Teaching and Visible Thinking routines developed by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. We also take relevant field trips to various locations to extend learning into the real world.

Individualized Learning Plans  –     One of the most unique benefits of      our kindergarten program is that an individualized learning plan is developed for each child. This plan is established in partnership with the teacher and parents. It specifies individual goals for each child. The goals are set in collaboration with parents based on assessment and classroom performance.

Technology and Homework - Hand held tablets are available for students to use to reinforce skills and for research on relevant topics. Homework is given on an individual basis as needed for skill development, or will be a fun family project.
 

 


A Family Experience

Communication - Our teachers are available to talk each day at parent drop off and pick up. We also provide weekly classroom newsletters, periodic progress reports, and parent conferences as needed. 

Parent Involvement – We encourage parents to visit and take part in our class projects. 

 


''I’ve volunteered in the classroom and have first-hand, witnessed the classroom family that the teachers have built. It is such a positive, warm environment where every child is taught kindness among their lessons. Both teachers have an amazing ability to morph lessons to topics that the children are interested in and thus engaged in.  Academic standards are top notch. The Tree Top Kindergarten class feels more like “home” to me than “school".
