We LOVE Kindergarten at SAM... and we think you will too

In 2023–2024, we will be offering full-day, AM, and PM Kindergarten.

Kindergarten is a word that literally means children’s garden, a place to grow. 

At SAM, your child’s experiences will form the foundation of their academic, intellectual, and social-emotional development. Kindergarten will give them a positive start to becoming lifelong learners. We understand that students are curious and eager to learn. Based on these natural attributes, students are encouraged to try new things. Children are motivated to try their best while being reassured that it’s okay to make mistakes because that is all part of learning. 

Staff Meetings & Early Dismissal

Kindergarten children do not attend school on staff meeting days, which fall on the first Wednesday of each month except September and January. Kindergarten children also do not attend school on the early dismissal days preceding winter break (in December) and spring break (in March).
