Laguna Blanca School Introduces Early Kindergarten Program

Laguna Blanca School's Lower School is proud to introduce its Early Kindergarten pilot program for the 2014-15 school year.

The board-approved program will follow the kindergarten structure of homeroom and specialist offerings complete with its own set of unique themes that are integrated throughout the curriculum.

To qualify for the Early Kindergarten program, a child must turn 5 sometime during the 2014-15 school year. The admission process will be the same as for all Lower School applicants, which includes an application, a class visit/playgroup and an individual evaluation.

Laguna Blanca School is limiting the class size to allow for meaningful interaction between the teachers and the students.

In addition to quality homeroom instruction by a full-time lead teacher and full-time instructional assistant, the following classes will be added to the core of the program: art, library, music, physical education, science, LEGO, Spanish and technology.

“Due to the increase in demand for our kindergarten program, the Early Kindergarten pilot program provides another opportunity to introduce new families to the school,” Head of Lower School Andy Surber said.

To learn more about the program, please contact Director of Admissions Joyce Balak at 805.687.1752 x210 or click here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
