Kindergarten at Alphabet Academy

Our all-day Kindergarten program is child driven, including elements of Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio-Emilia and outdoor learning while also meeting Connecticut educational standards.  Students explore on a one and a half acre outdoor classroom adjacent to the Farmington Canal Greenway and expand their palates with Alphabet’s organic food program. Your child will make the transition from preschool to elementary school in a nurturing, creative and challenging environment. Early morning and late afternoon are included.
