Kindergarten is an engaging academic day full of hands-on learning opportunities and explorations. Students love to bring home the grade level mascot, Wishie, and share their adventures together during class meetings.

Another Kindergarten highlight is student participation in the living nativity during our all school Christmas Service. Kindergarteners are on the move and take several field trips throughout the year, including nature walks and visits on the church campus, Butler’s Orchard, and Imagination Stage.
