Primary (PK-JK)

At Le Jardin Academy, we prioritize the social, emotional, and academic well-being of our youngest learners in Pre-Kindergarten (PK) and Junior Kindergarten (JK).


Our curriculum is based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP), which focuses on the development of the whole child through transdisciplinary themes of global importance. Classes are guided by experienced and caring teachers and aides who understand the importance of student-centered learning, and classrooms are designed for students to work both independently and with direction. Using a global lens, students are introduced to reading, writing, mathematics, the arts, and a foreign language in a nurturing yet challenging setting. Our constructionist approach encourages children to wonder and ask questions as they take ownership of their learning and acquire lifelong skills that impact their own lives, their communities, and the world.
