Private Kindergarten & 1st Grade Program
Discovery Point’s Kindergarten & 1st Grade program offers an innovative approach to learning with engaging project-based lessons. Our program is designed to individualize curriculum to meet each of our student’s academic needs.
We will explore five subject areas in this program:

Our curriculum also offers a strong focus on social and emotional development, to prepare your child both academically and socially to take their next steps into their next grade.
Discovery Point kindergarten students will learn in a small group environment that allows for individualized instruction, as well as provides the benefits of group learning. Our students get to learn about the world around them through a hands-on approach as we work through projects and experiments. This allows the students to gain insight and detail into each area of study while promoting critical thinking and self-motivation.

With Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Science Fusion program, students are given the opportunity to truly dive into science, rather than simply listen to a basic lecture on science topics. We encourage young students to utilize their curiosity, develop their problem-solving skills, discover science concepts for themselves, and ultimately interact with and apply everything they are learning in the science program.
