Full Day Kindergarten

When CCS first opened, in 2014, we originally offered instruction for high school and upper level middle school. We quickly saw the need to offer our one-on-one based small group instruction to all grade levels.

 

Our Kinder Philosophy: kindergarten = happy, noisy, busy children. The groundwork for good school performance begins early and our kindergarteners have thrived as students.

 

Evidence suggests that high-quality early years play-based learning enriches educational development: both emotionally and socially in terms of academic achievement. For this reason, we like to highlight physical activity and creative play. We believe that carefully organized play helps develop qualities such as attention span, determination, concentration and problem solving. With a mix of “free play” and teacher-directed play, the children’s development is constantly evaluated.

 

One of our goals is to help them develop good social habits: to learn how to make friends and respect others; to dress themselves competently, etc. More formal guidance emphasizes the importance in the “joy of learning”, with language enrichment and communication, thus making children happier and less stressed.

 

Our learning-to learn strategy will include but is not limited to the following: social and emotional learning, art and crafts, * multiliteracy, digital skills, music, foreign language, and entrepreneurship. Our classroom environment is designed to engage their minds, meet their sensory needs, and offer practice with academic content.

 

We want to prepare every student with the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for success!

 

Kindergarten enrollment is extremely limited, as the level of individualized care we offer is successful based on strict student teacher ratio.

We only offer 5 spots for our kinder program and currently have 4 spots available. Enrollment and tuition are the same as grades 1st-6th and sibling discounts.

Please see the chart below for details. Enrollment is on a first-come first-serve basis.

$500 enrollment fee and $400.00/month tuition unless a sibling discount is to be applied.

* Literacy traditionally means “the ability to read and write; a synthesis of language, context, and thinking that shapes meaning” (Cope & Kalantzis 2000; Walsh 2010). The term multiliteracies takes into account how literacy has been influenced by “social, cultural, and technological change” This approach enables teachers to be creative in the literacy classroom by integrating movies, the Internet, music, art, photos and a range of other digital resources (Multiliteracies expanding teacher's creativity 2011).

 

Home School Terminology

CCS is a THSC Partner Group

The Texas Home School Coalition provides a wealth of information for the homeschool community and more info can be found on their website at www.thsc.org.

Home School Terminology

THSC definition of a home schooled student:
A home schooled student predominantly receives instruction in a general, elementary or secondary education program that is provided by the parent—or a person standing in parental authority—in or through the child’s home [Texas Education Code 29.916 (a)].

The parent or person standing in parental authority might contract with outside sources in order that the student receives additional instruction. For example, a private tutor, co-op class or a college class. However, this source or these sources do not circumvent the parent’s role in determining the overall success or failure of the student.

Home school group:
All home school groups on our list seek to serve families who meet the definition of home schooling. This means their children participate in the group, but the group will not attempt to become an authority over the student’s education, per the definition of home schooling. THSC Partner Groups meet criteria as defined on THSC Types of Groups.

Private school:
Private school is a broad category of describing any non-public school. This includes traditional accredited private schools that require daily attendance and tuition, unaccredited private schools which are similar but not subject to the same accreditation requirements, home schools which are a type of private school but not regulated the same way as other types of private school, and other options that are a hybrid of these different types. For example, in a university model school, a student might attend the school 2-3 days per week and then be schooled at home for the rest of the week.
