Welcome to Kindergarten!

The development of confident, articulate, thoughtful, and compassionate young women begins in Kindergarten at Villa Maria Academy.

The basic foundation for skills such as reading and writing, as well as the concepts involved in language, math, science, world language and culture are taught in Kindergarten.

Many of the most important life lessons are also developed in the early years. Children learn about choosing right from wrong, how to set and reach goals, how to appreciate diversity, make good decisions, the importance of community, and they develop social skills,  a solid moral character and faith foundation.

These academic and developmental skills and values are at the core of a Kindergarten education at Villa Maria Academy.
