Child development expert Jean Piaget observed that children acquire vast amounts of knowledge and skills through peer interactions. Abiqua's Pre-Kindergarten educators shape curriculum and activities to produce a gentle, respectful environment where children can learn through experience, creative play, and shared group activities that develop literacy and numeracy.  Daily interactions with specialists in a variety of courses such as music, Spanish, art, and physical education foster age-appropriate growth and development.

In this child-centered learning environment, students develop ideas and consider others’ perspectives. Through writing, art, dramatic play, and math activities, students demonstrate their understanding of their world. Kindergarten typically has a plant and animal theme that changes topics depending on children's interests. Whole group lessons begin each day. Students work in small center activities in math, science, social studies, reading, and writing. This approach to learning allows for daily choices and differentiation for learning styles and academic levels. Learning how to make effective choices is part of becoming a responsible student.

Early Childhood Education

Young children thrive in environments rich in opportunities for exploration and peer interaction. Students are surrounded by caring adults who gently guide play and offer choices that focus on the development of social-emotional skills, significant milestones, and beginning academic concepts. Differentiation within the classroom means that all students are motivated to move forward. There are no limits to learning. Like their older buddies, Abiqua’s youngest students enjoy experiences in Spanish, Art, Music, and Physical Education.
