Kindergarten is the beginning of a child's experience in school, and it is important in our program to build each child's self-esteem, build cooperation skills, and create a love for learning! Kindergarten age students will engage in child-centered activities as they learn in a playful, cooperative environment, where they will be able to explore their interests and discover the joy of learning.

NFP offers a host of options for kindergarteners, including library, music, outdoor education, physical education, and more, as well as a once a week, half-day "Fundergarten" class. This class introduces children to kindergarten experiences and includes the WaKIDS observational assessment -- which is part of one of the state requirements for kindergarten.
