Kindergarten and First grade

At Lorien Wood, Form 1 is a time of growing socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Your involvement, interest, and enthusiasm will help make this a wonderful year of growth for you and your child.

The structure of daily activities is carefully planned to encourage independence, self-confidence, and group cooperation through large groups, small groups, and one-on-one participation in a variety of hands-on, interactive experiences. The activities will incorporate instruction and skill reinforcement in reading, spelling, mathematics, writing, science/social studies, art, music, fine and gross motor skills, social/emotional skills, and language development. These very important years promise to be filled with discovery and joy as your child works and plays, discovering their place in God’s world!

In alternating years, Form One follows the themes of “This Is My Father’s World” and “Real and Pretend.”
