Kindergarten: A Year of Curiosity and Exploration!

The goal of Nolan Kindergarten is to set the foundations for a lifelong love of learning. Kindergarten is a time for your child to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Our focus will be on the Kindergarten standards while learning to become independent thinkers and problem solvers. Our students are actively engaged through well planned literacy and math centers, giving them an opportunity to explore and feed their curiosity.
Creative opportunities are endless at Nolan through time spent in our MEF funded STEM lab, computer lab, and visual arts classroom, as well as in music, physical education, and library with makerspaces. Students create, explore, invent, and imagine throughout the day.
We welcome a partnership with our parents that involves special projects at home and at school, volunteering with our Book Buddy literacy program, joining and actively participating with the PTA, and/or becoming a Room Parent for the class. These are just a few of the ways parents can support our Kindergartners. Highlights of the year: Old MacDonald’s Farm,
trick-or-treat parade, Native American feast at Thanksgiving, The Polar Express Pajama Day, The Nature Center, STEM Carts for Recess, Dr. Welch’s Dental Health Visit, Dr. Hatch’s Germ and Handwashing Lesson, Creative Discovery Museum Presentation and a visit from the Signal Mountain Fire Department.
