At ACS, we are dedicated to providing a child-centered environment
where children learn joyfully.
Early Childhood Education at Almaden Country School includes Begindergarten (four-year-old preschool), Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten.
In our Early Childhood Education (ECE)
program, we focus on each child as an individual who is accepted and
valued, while encouraging the child’s development in small and large
group learning activities.
The ECE curriculum is a developmental program based on a sequence of skills and designed to develop the whole child, emphasizing social, intellectual, emotional and physical growth.
Learning takes place using a hands-on, multi-sensory approach at each level — we hear, we see, we say, we do. Children learn to work, play, and share with others, developing self-esteem and interpersonal skills through a variety of engaging, meaningful classroom experiences led by our licensed Early Childhood specialists.
The ECE experience provides a strong foundation for future academic and social growth, introducing children to the stimulating, positive learning environment at ACS.
