Give them the best start.
Gingham Kindergarten serves as a natural bridge between the emergent curriculum and readiness skills formed in preschool and the academic skills necessary for continued scholastic success.
Full Day Kindergarten
Traditional Academics of Language Arts, Reading and Mathematics ground our core curriculum; electives in Global Studies, Spanish, Fine Arts, and STEM round out our afternoons to foster a true love of learning. The Gingham Kindergarten Curriculum follows NJ State Core Curriculum standards and includes Chatham public school texts for ease of transition to First Grade.
Our Whole-Family Approach to learning becomes paramount at this stage: families receive detailed monthly progress reports so that foundational concepts can be reinforced at home. Parental support is invited through participation in several events during the school year, including our interactive Art Show. Two formal in-person conferences provide detailed feedback.
“...adaptive, attentive, communicative and demonstrates a clear passion and love for our children. We feel so grateful that our children attend a school that not only focuses on academics, but also places significant value on integrity and kindness, helping teach our little ones what it means to be a good friend.... I cannot say enough positive things about the robustness of the K curriculum and caliber of the teachers. Our son is more than ready to make the transition to first grade!"
"Our oldest started in the 3’s program and he also attended their first ever full-day Kindergarten program. We loved it so much that we had our 2nd child attend year 2 of the full-day K program, and will likely have our 3rd and 4th (who will start in the 2’s program this year) attend through Kindergarten, as well! We cannot say enough good things about the school, the curriculum (they’ve helped to grow 2 readers so far and also taught them all about famous artists like Monet and Frida Kahlo!), and especially the staff."
