Ridgefield Academy's private kindergarten program is meticulously designed to accomodate the unique interests, skills, and needs of each child. Their lessons are tailored to ignite curiosity, nurture individual strengths, and address challenges, providing a personalized and engaging learning experience.

While academic milestones are a core focus, Ridgefield Academy places great importance on the kindergarten year as a pivotal time for building foundational qualities such as independence, confidence, and self-assuredness. Kindergarteners at RA are encouraged to embrace challenges and setbacks as part of their learning journey, fostering the development of a growth mindset that instills a lifelong love for learning.

Choosing a school often comes down to a feeling, and at Ridgefield Academy, that feeling is rooted in the collective experience of their program, culture, and traditions. Families can have confidence in the knowledge that at RA, values like kindness are actively taught, a sense of responsibility is nurtured, character development is a priority, and the overall learning experience is marked by joy and enthusiasm.
