Writing a fairy tale as a class is just one way the LFCDS senior kindergarten (SK) program fosters a love of learning while building fundamental academic and life skills. The SK curriculum emphasizes Language Arts, including reading, writing, speaking, and listening, as well as growth in comprehension, interpretation, and vocabulary development. Mathematical problem-solving, scientific investigation, social studies, art, music literacy, Mandarin Chinese, physical education and wellness, and free exploration fill each day with rich learning and growth opportunities.

Senior kindergarten is also the bridge to the Lower School. Starting in October, SK students participate in weekly Community Meetings with students in grades 1—4. The SK program is a five-day full-day program, and children have the opportunity to stay until 6:00 p.m. by participating in the Extended School Program.
The LFCDS Senior Kindergarten program is for children who have turned five on or before September 1
