Early Childhood

Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten

Please note the start time change for the 2019-2020 School Year. Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) will start at 8:00am and end at 1:30pm. Kindergarten (KG) will start at 8:00am and end at 2:45pm.

The Early Childhood grade levels provide a learning environment for over 100 students where young children feel happy, safe, nurtured, and challenged academically.

Educational practices of the highest quality take place in every classroom as students are encouraged think creatively and critically. Children learn to communicate effectively and to develop problem-solving skills while they are actively engaged in academic activities based on developmentally appropriate standards-based curriculum.

Our faculty consists of highly experienced and highly qualified professionals who are committed to the learning and the development of each student. Every classroom teacher has a teaching assistant, which allows individual and special attention for every child.

The Early Childhood Program offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities wherein children have an opportunity to further develop physically, socially, and cognitively.

Our parents play an integral role in the life of our school; they are partners in the education process. Parents help to make the school a welcoming and warm family environment.

It is a great pleasure to be a part of this beautiful learning environment that we all collectively foster here at ISY. We welcome you to visit our campus and feel the warmth and kindness that creates the uniqueness of our educational offerings.
