Kindergarten is the first step in formal education. We believe it is important for that first step to be a positive experience. At Ambassador Academy kindergartners will begin to develop a love of learning as they gain new skills and experience success in putting those skills to use.
When entering kindergarten a student may just be learning the alphabet or already reading and ready for the next step. Each student’s program is tailored specifically to them to ensure mastery of material and to keep them challenged and interested in learning. A solid curriculum is used to provide a strong foundation.
Enrichment stations and special projects allow students to practice the skills they are learning. Students will participate in the annual all-school program. The program includes music, drama and academic accomplishments. Other school-wide activities include community visitors and special guests, exploring the campus, and cooking projects.
Kindergarten recess includes teacher-lead games, skill-building activities, and free play. There are also many science unit studies in which students use the large outdoor campus including bird watching, life cycles, and seasonal studies.
Christian education at Ambassador Academy is in every teachable moment throughout the day. We provide a caring, safe, and God-honoring environment while providing excellence in education. Throughout the year kindergartners will grow in their understanding of how they are loved by God and how to honor God in all they say and do (Colosians 3:23-24).
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer half-day kindergarten?
No. Our kindergarten program is designed to be full-time only, 9:00am – 3:20pm.
How many students are in the classroom?
We have one teacher for a total of ten or less students in the combined k-2 classroom. We keep the k-2 classroom size close to ten so that individual needs are better met.
Do you teach according to grade level?
The children are given books at their grade or ability level. As the lessons are taught, students who need the lesson are included in the lesson, regardless of their grade. This method insures that all students are taught the material they need. Our focus is on the material that the students need to learn, rather than the grade they are in.
Do you have before or after school care?
No. Students are dropped off no earlier than 9:00am and picked up no later than 3:30pm.
