The Happy Heart Kindergarten program offers students, aged 5 years old by November 15th, a PA state-licensed kindergarten program of study, Monday through Friday, 8:45-12:45, from the end of August through early June. At Happy Heart Kindergarten, class sizes are substantially smaller
providing more individualized instruction and a longer class day. Students will learn in a well-equipped and stimulating classroom environment.
Program emphasis is placed on PA Common Core Standards for kindergarten instruction. Language Arts, including reading, writing and speaking and Math skills are taught each day of the week in relaxed, but creative, ways. Science, History, Geography and Social Studies topics are incorporated in daily topics and classwork. Writing skills are developed through weekly classroom assignments, as well as weekly homework assignments. Art is an integral part of the program; additionally, there is a daily opportunity for indoor and outdoor play. Music and exercise are part of each class day’s activities, as well as being monthly specials that are provided by professional instructors. A school-provided snack and a lunch brought from home is eaten during each class day.
After the successful completion of the Happy Heart Kindergarten Program, students may either progress to Grade 1 in a public or private school or attend a public school Kindergarten program with complete academic preparedness and social competence.
A morning Kindergarten enrichment program at Happy Heart is another option for students who attend the Daniel Boone PM Kindergarten program. These students arrive at Happy Heart at 8:45, then, get a school district bus to transport them to their pm classes at Monocacy Kindergarten (approximately 11:45 dismissal). These students benefit from a full-day of kindergarten instruction, while actually paying for only a half-day program.
Also, with adequate enrollment, a full day Kindergarten program from 8:45-2:45, M-F, will be offered at Happy Heart; interested families will get definite confirmation in May.
