KINDERGARTEN Social Studies

Social Studies allow preschoolers to explore and understand their surrounding environment. Children begin to learn about their classroom community, routines, rhythms, and rules. They begin to understand how to function as a group. By sharing their different backgrounds, holiday traditions, and exploring a variety of cultural and ethnic cooking activities, stories, music, and dances, preschoolers are able to discover the many wonderful differences and common threads that bind individuals together. Learning to respect as well as accepting a variety of ideas and opinions is a goal of the program. After children become comfortable in their own classroom, they are introduced to the wider school community: interacting with Lower School buddies, watching performances by other classes, and participating in school-wide events such as the all-school art show.
