The goals of kindergarten include academic achievements as well as social growth. Building the desire to come to school in addition to an enjoyment of what we do at John Young Elementary, is a theme the kindergarten team works on throughout the year. We also work on learning letter names and sounds, pre-reading skills, numbers, simple computation, fine and gross motor skills, and following directions. The social skills we strive to enhance include fairness, caring about people, team-work, respect for self and others, self-discipline and responsibility.

The kindergarten team of teachers is creative and energetic. We have over 40 years of combined experience together and often collaborate on projects.
