Through a well-developed curriculum, which is based on the Standards and Benchmarks of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Catholic Schools, the kindergarteners receive the instructions necessary to meet and exceed first grade readiness.
Our Kindergarten program provides a more structured setting in which the children’s listening skills are generally more developed. Religion class is more formal, and the kindergarteners learn several memorized prayers and engage in discussions about the truths of the Catholic faith in simple terms.
All teachers are specialists in the field of Early Childhood Education and Kindergarten, and they are carefully selected to teach young children in a loving, respectful, and positive manner. This approach is modeled after the Educational Philosophy of Saint John Bosco. At a time when more demands are being made on young children to meet the expectation of our highly pressured society, our staff offers a peaceful and non-threatening environment where children can be themselves and expand their desire to learn.
Little Flower’s curriculum flows from the principle that foundations for life are laid in early childhood. Therefore, Little Flower strives to lay a strong, solid foundation that encompasses all aspects of learning and life experiences, from instilling and preserving our faith, to a love for lifelong learning in the academic area through readiness skills. Our kindergarteners focus more formal studies in the following areas:
- Foundational Math Skills
- Social Studies
- Physical Development/Kid-Fit
- Writing to Read
- Language, Phonics, Writing, and Spelling
- Literature-listening comprehension
- Current Events
Little Flower is fully qualified to educate Kindergarten children from 5 to 6 years of age until the time they enter first grade.
