Kindergarten

Available at select TGS locations, our private Kindergarten program offers a full day of fun educational experiences. With a research-based curriculum and teacher/student ratios that are nearly half those of most public and private schools, your child will gain an academic edge right from the start.

Program Highlights

Imagine It! Curriculum icon

Imagine It! Curriculum

Our private Kindergarten classes feature the Imagine It! Curriculum, which focuses on science, social studies, and all five areas of reading and writing: phonetic awareness, systematic phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Using repetition and hands-on exploration of materials, our teachers encourage students to tap into their logical reasoning, memory, and focused organizational skills.

MATH Expressions

Our math program combines elements of standards-based instruction with the best traditional approaches to help our Kindergarteners make sense of math. Through drawings, conceptual language, and real-world examples, your child will begin to grasp basic math concepts and develop confidence in mathematical learning.

Full-Day Classroom Experience icon

Full-Day Classroom Experience

Unlike many Kindergarten offerings, TGS features a full-day curriculum and schedule that will fully prepare your child for the first grade. Unlike many other schools in the communities we serve, TGS believes that creating a habit of learning over a full class day leads to well-prepared first graders.

Small-Group Setting

Our private Kindergarten features much smaller teacher/student ratios than most public and private schools. Our typical class ratio is one teacher to every 15 students, as we believe in delivering a focused, hands-on learning experience for your child.

Technology icon

Technology

Learning centers give Kindergarteners the opportunity to test out daily lessons with real-world, hands-on application. We incorporate technology into the repetitive extension of teacher-directed lessons by encouraging our students to play educational games and solve puzzles on the computer and iPad. With technology becoming a main focus in Elementary Schools, your child will develop a sense of comfort and ease with computers at an early age.

Communication icon

Communication

We understand the importance of staying connected to your child while at school. With real-time daily updates, photos, and notifications through our PreciouStatus emails and app, our teachers take time to communicate every piece of your child’s day. Through KITE binders, phone calls and teacher/parent conferences, TGS enables and encourages our parents to be an active part of their child’s educational experience. Detailed child assessments ensure that each child is achieving the appropriate levels of success for this developmental age.
