For 50 years Applewild School has provided a dynamic foundation for children. Our full-day Kindergarten program is the cornerstone of that foundation. Our Kindergarten program emphasizes:
Literacy and mathematics activities
Solid personal and social skills
Healthy work habits
Joy for learning
The Kindergarten day includes:
Gross motor activities
In addition, physical education is taught weekly by our PE teacher and a rotation of "specials" is taught in the following fields
Music and drama
Applewild’s Kindergarten is nestled in our Marshall Lower School Building, providing a wonderful environment for socialization in morning meetings, snack time, outdoor play, classroom library, and areas for blocks, housekeeping, art, science, writing and math. Kindergarten children are fully integrated into the life of our LowerSchool at our family-style lunches and in afternoon activities.
Our two early childhood experts, both with master's degrees, team teach in our Kindergarten. They have a wealth of experience providing developmentally appropriate active learning opportunities. In addition, our “special” subject teachers are professional educators trained in their disciplines.
Our Kindergarten’s six-hour academic day (8 a.m. – 2 p.m.) is appropriately paced, with an all-inclusive fee (lunch, snack). Children move comfortably among stations, projects and specials. Their day includes specific academic components both before and after lunch. Participation in the Kindergarten program ensures that children are well prepared for our 7 1/2 hour 1st Grade academic program.
For families wishing additional coverage for their children, our Extended Day Program provides relaxed, nurturing childcare including socialization, crafts, and exercise in a safe, well-supervised setting at an additional fee.
Extended Day is offered at a discounted rate for Kindergarten families who wish to have their children remain at Applewild until 3:40 p.m. pick up.
2 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. @ $4.75/hour
3:45 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. @ $7.35/hour
12 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. Fridays @ $7.35/hour (K-3 has a half-day every Friday)
*Rates are subject to change
