Kindergarten at Ridgefield Academy

According to research, the success children achieve during their kindergarten year is a major indicator of future academic success. That is why Ridgefield Academy offers a comprehensive and appropriately challenging kindergarten curriculum balanced with play and exploration that fosters confidence and a love of learning. Our full-day program is taught by experienced teachers in small classroom settings to maximize personalized learning and growth.

RA’s approach is centered on developing confident and self-directed learners who are engaged by a challenging curriculum in a nurturing environment. Throughout each subject we teach 21st century skills such as creativity and innovation, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to best prepare our students for a rapidly changing future. Individualized and small group instruction allows for personalized learning in the core subjects of reading, writing, math, and social studies. Developing non-cognitive skills such as interpersonal skills, public speaking, and empathy are also a critical component of our program.
