The Kindergarten experience enhances children’s personal development and gives them a growing sense of responsibility. The program teaches them how to try new things with confidence, creativity and a “can do” attitude. Children’s endurance and stamina builds gradually over the year. In a Catholic school, the affective and sensory religious experiences the children enjoy in Kindergarten are the foundation of their continuing spiritual journey. After kindergarten, the children are ready to build on their everyday faith experiences as they learn more explicitly in Grade 1 that God loves each of us unconditionally.
