Kindergarten at Regent offers our youngest students a safe and welcoming place to grow.
Teachers make use of focused instruction balanced with kinaesthetic activities, such as movement, music, and games, to aid in learning.Unique to RCA is the focus on academic learning at the Kindergarten level.
Lessons are integrated into themes, developing students’ interest and their ability to apply learning from one area to another.
Curriculum-related, monthly field trips provide additional wonderful learning experiences for our students.
This means that children learn not only the names of the letters, but the sounds they make, and eventually learn to blend the sounds together to read entire words. Our Kindergarten program at RCA focuses on early literacy skills, with much attention paid to phonemic awareness.
The success of this program is evidenced by the fact that most of our students enter Grade 1 with a solid foundation as beginning readers.
Through daily calendar activities as well as dedicated Math lessons, the students gain a solid foundation in number sense and beginning computation. In Kindergarten we use the highly effective Saxon Math program which is taught throughout the Primary School at RCA.
Our students learn about place value, beginning geometry, addition, subtraction, money, time and problem solving.
Lessons provide clear, directed instruction and involve much student-participation followed by student activities that practice and reinforce new skills.
Students in Kindergarten at Regent are warmly welcomed by the entire student body as our youngest members and are given a safe place to develop an understanding about group learning, social growth, and spiritual matters.
During the school year, there are several multi-grade or all-school events in which our students participate with confidence and a sense of belonging.
Because we are a Kindergarten-Grade 12 facility, our children can build friendships with those with whom they later graduate high school.
Our Kindergarten staff is a team of dedicated, caring and knowledgeable individuals who desire the very best for your children.
We are now taking priority registration for Kindergarten classes. Families already attending RCA are invited to submit a registration form for Kindergarten in order to secure a place for your child.
Both classes will attend Primary Chapel on Wednesdays and some field trips and special events will be combined activities.
