Early Kindergarten


Ages 3.4 – 4.3 years old

Learning is alive on campus for our Early Kindergarten students! The beauty of the MUSE Global School campus is our key in learning integration and it surrounds us everyday!

Communication: We introduce our communication model (PCM) early. In addition to the literal academics around communication– dictating stories, journaling, letters, etc– Early Kinders are learning about how they like to communicate, how their friends like to communicate and how to express those likes or dislikes in a positive way. We are building self-efficacy, practicing healthy communication skills and reinforcing oral literacy.
Voice + Choice: We are intentional about voice and choice throughout the day, as well as throughout the student’s learning journey. Dedicated passion projects are integral to how we do what we do in the classroom with our students. Each student’s choice of topic gives us insight into who they currently are and who we are helping them become. Each child’s opportunity to present the project to their peers, enforces the work we do academically (showcased at Culmination) and complements their communication growth.
Academics: We set a high bar for academics. If you go through our EK program, acquiring those skills puts you ahead.

EK Students are beginning to make reflective connections and engage in active conversations with teachers and peers. They are encouraged to express their opinions and feelings when engaging with friends. Students in EK will ask and answer questions in order to seek help, get information or clarify something that is not understood. Through consistent journaling, students are dictating stories for teachers to write down. 

Our EK Students are gaining pre-reading skills through daily read-alouds and interactive circle times. Students are encouraged to attempt to retell a story that has been read and ask and answer questions about a text.

 These students are strengthening their phonological awareness by beginning to recognize and write upper case letters and their sounds. They are able to create drawings with distinctive shapes and symbols that represent their thoughts or ideas.

EK students can count and recognize numbers 1-30 in print. They are learning to create simple patterns and geometric shapes using paper as well as hands-on manipulatives. The students are gaining an understanding of the concept of measurement through using non-standard units learning the idea of “more” and “less.”

The EK students are becoming inquisitive thinkers who are gaining an understanding of the Scientific Method. Through exploring new materials and textures, classroom experiments, and campus explorations, students are encouraged to make observations and predictions. Students are beginning to understand the natural world through exploring different habitats and the qualities specific to living things.

Social Studies
The EK students are gaining confidence in themselves and their role within the school community. They participate in classroom jobs and help in creating the classroom agreements. These students are encouraged to notice diversity in human characteristics and celebrate the differences between themselves and their peers.
