Kindergarten students engage in curriculum that integrates technology into the daily experience and provides hands-on science activities. Students actively participate in music, physical education and media curriculum.

Students enrolling in our kindergarten program begin their academic career at L’Anse Creuse developing social skills, confidence and positive self-image with an emphasis on cognitive development. L’Anse Creuse students receive instruction delivered in a safe and nurturing environment, led by highly qualified teachers with specifications in early childhood learning that exceed state and federal mandates. Literacy specialists and highly qualified instructional paraprofessionals support classroom initiatives, providing a deeper academic experience for each of our programs.


Transitional Kindergarten, also known as TK, is a free program being offered in L'Anse Creuse for next fall.  TK is the first of a two-year kindergarten sequence.  Students attend TK followed by Kindergarten the next school year.

TK was created for children who would benefit from an additional year of growth and development before attending kindergarten.  This program will allow our youngest learners the time they need to grow academically, socially, and emotionally in order to be fully prepared for kindergarten.  (More information see Transitional Kindergarten Information document above)
