In a dynamic classroom with a student:teacher ratio of 7:1, our kindergarteners begin their academic careers with inspiring curriculum and individualized instruction. Emphasis is placed on developing strong reading and thinking skills and encouraging children to be themselves – curious explorers of the world around them!
We provide explicit instruction in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, music, Spanish, art and P.E.. We also balance this instruction with time to play during recess and free-choice activities at the end of the day. Kindergarten is a full-day program with before- and after-care available.
Our kindergarteners leave St. Matthew’s with the academic skills and self-confidence to SOAR in a wide-range of public and private schools. In the last several years, we have sent students to Bowie public schools, Crofton public schools, and the following independent institutions: Bowie Montessori, Cornerstone Academy, Grace Christian, Holy Trinity, Indian Creek, Key School, St. Andrew’s, St. Anne’s, St. Martin’s, St. Pius X, and School of the Incarnation.
