A child’s first experience at school is an important landmark event in a student’s life. And we believe kindergarten is the best time to introduce students to the classroom setting and life at Heritage Oak School.
Heritage Oak offers kindergarten classes with flexible half‐ and full‐day options, parents can choose how to best transition their child into the classroom. Our small intimate setting allows for a truly personal and caring experience that is well balanced for optimal student growth, emotionally and spiritually as well as academically.
Emphasis in the kindergarten classroom focuses on building healthy relationships and confidence, establishing routines, developing fine motor skills, strong academic basics in phonics, reading, math, memory work, discovery-based and hands‐on‐learning as well as various field trips into the community. These are hallmarks of the Heritage Oak Kindergarten experience. We highly encourage all families to sign up for a tour to see our kindergarten first hand to experience the joy and excitement that awaits your child!
