Lower School Campus Programs:
• Early Childhood Program:
Teachers create an environment that affords the potential for learning. We focus on projects and activities in a balanced, integrated way.
The daily schedule includes a broad variety of activities that incorporate both group and individual activities. Learning centers are an integral component of our Early Childhood Program.
Teachers prepare centers in conjunction with curriculum plans and add new special interest centers as needed. The program is designed to stimulate learning in social, emotional, physical, and intellectual domains. The majority of the day is spent engaged in classroom activities, specialty classes and fine motor and gross motor activities.
Early Childhood students experience language development through a variety of activities. They are provided with daily opportunities to observe how language is relevant to their lives.
Our teachers incorporate storytelling, finger plays, rhymes, songs, poems, and sharing time. Letter sounds and names are incorporated into each of these activities as well.
Students are prepared for kindergarten by learning the connection between written and oral language. Developmentally appropriate reading skills are introduced in our Pre-kindergarten program utilizing the McGraw-Hill reading series.
• Elementary Program:
The Elementary Program at The Sagemont School emphasizes meaningful instruction for each individual child. Our small class size enables teachers to discover each child's individual strengths and challenges. Teachers develop specific objectives necessary for success in each grade level.
Students are encouraged to think critically and work cooperatively in a mutually respectful setting. Students are encouraged to always strive for their personal best.
Our "hands-on / student centered" curriculum incorporates activities within all the major subject areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science.
