The 1st Grade program is dedicated to developing the “Total Child,” while instilling a love of learning in each student. Nurturing the natural curiosity and enthusiasm of our children, as well as the significant growth that occurs at this important time, we emphasize an integrated approach to learning, often through the use of themes. As part of our hands-on, project-based approach to learning, we enhance the 1st Grade experience through SMART Boards and iPad integration. Moreover, we seek to foster, within every child, a sense of caring, responsibility, cooperation, and respect for self and others.
Our Technology Curriculum
Laurence's technology curriculum begins in Kindergarten and progresses through the grades, setting a strong pace of learning focused on computational thinking skills, the design process, practical technology use, coding, and, of course, the joy of discovery, making, and tinkering!
