Kindergarten Program Selection/Options 2021-2022 School year

Thank you for your application for the kindergarten program at Davinci Academy. For many parents, your kindergartener may be the first child at Davinci while other families are returning with siblings.

For most children, Kindergarten is their first experience with school, and we want that first experience to be exciting and engaging. At Davinci, we utilize StarFall Reading and Math curriculum and Second Steps Social Skills Curriculum, as well as project-based learning for Science. Students engage in daily centers that focus on their academic skills as well as their social and emotional skills. Mrs. Harris is the classroom teacher and Mrs. Heslop is the aide. Each half-day class has 20 students. Our specials teachers often rotate in with our kinder students to give them experiences in social emotional learning, music, and art. Students also have a daily recess.

We provide two options for kindergarten, and in order to continue the lottery process, we need you to identify which option you would like your child to be enrolled in. This helps organize our lottery process.

 

Option 1--- Half-day Kindergarten--We offer an AM and PM session of half-day kindergarten. The times are below.

  • Am Session: 8:15-11:15 Monday-Friday
  • Pm Session: 12:15-3:15 Monday-Thursday and 8:15-11:15 on Friday*

Option 2--- Full-day Kindergarten 8:15-3:15 Monday-Thursday (YMCA Fee Associated with this option)

We partner with YMCA Kinder Academy to provide a full-day kindergarten experience to help support our working parents. If you choose this option, your child will spend half of the day with our teacher, Mrs. Harris, and the other half of the day with the YMCA teacher, Ms. Bonnie. While in YMCA Kinder Academy, students continue to work on their academics as well as their social and emotional skills. If you choose this option, there is a payment fee connected to the YMCA program. The YMCA provides a sliding scale for payment that is connected to your family's income. For more information please visit this link.
