Description

SkyView Academy's Primary School provides a developmentally appropriate, content-rich Core Knowledge academic program preparing young children in preschool and kindergarten to enter grade school with a strong foundation of cognitive skills, curiosity, social confidence, and interest in foreign language.

With a strong focus on challenging, but age-appropriate content, the Core Knowledge Curriculum is unique among early childhood programs. It outlines a cumulative and coherent progression of knowledge and skills in all developmental areas and integrates developmentally appropriate practices for both content and instruction.

The skills and knowledge of both the Kindergarten and Preschool Sequence provide a solid foundation for the content that children will encounter in their daily lives. Those children who transition from the SVA preschool class to a content-rich kindergarten class, like the one found at SVA, have the greatest advantage in terms of future academic success. Those that continue on into SVA's kindergarten will be prepared for the continued succession of the content rich, ever building liberal arts program that Core Knowledge is known for.
