You and your child are about to begin a new adventure! At Bradford Academy, we realize kindergarten is a right of passage for every child that offers a world of new discoveries. This is the official start of your child’s educational path. The skills and knowledge he or she acquires in kindergarten become the building blocks for future academic success.
In German, the word Kindergarten means “children’s garden.” Just like a flower garden, kindergarten is a place for a child’s mind to grow and be nourished. In our Kindergarten classroom(s), our teachers will nurture your child’s natural curiosity, while reinforcing the joy of discovery.
Our small class sizes allow for staff to form a special bond with each student, giving each classroom a real family feel where lifetime friendships are formed. The bonds formed between student and teacher help foster an environment where children are comfortable to laugh, play and most importantly, learn.
At Bradford Academy, your child will learn all the basics needed to prepare them for the next 12 years of their lives. In our kindergarten, your child will see that learning is interesting, satisfying, challenging and fun!
