Kindergarten

*A child must be 5 on or before August 15 to enroll in Kindergarten.

Our kindergarten language program introduces students to the joys of reading and writing. Phonics immersion equips students with skills in letters, sounds, one- and two-vowel words, and consonant blends. Within a few weeks of our opening day, students are ready to begin reading Primary Phonics fun books with simple plots and characters. Our commitment to mastering the art of handwriting begins in kindergarten. Students practice formation of all upper- and lower-case letters. Skills of handwriting and phonics meet when students learn to scribe short dictated sentences.

She has an AS in Business Management from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut. Mrs. Howard fulfilled a lifelong dream, having entered the field of teaching as a second career. She has been a certified teacher for more than 15 years, working in the public school system and, more recently, as an online teacher and tutor.

Mrs. Howard lives in Massachusetts with her husband Jack, whom she married in 2001. She enjoys visiting with family and friends, as well as spending time walking and hiking outdoors. Mrs. Howard also enjoys traveling with her husband, with the hope to visit all of the national parks in the United States to appreciate and explore the great country. With a strong dedication to teaching children, Mrs. Howard strives to foster a love for learning in all her students as they gain foundational knowledge and skills in each subject through intrinsic motivation.
