Kindergarten at Kirby is a progressive, academically focused, full-day program which is taught by an experienced, caring teaching team that includes a NJ State certified Lead Teacher with a master's degree in education.

The curriculum exceeds NJ State Core Curriculum content standards and provides students with individualized, experiential learning opportunities that support and reinforce the key concepts they learn in mathematics, language arts, science and social studies.

This approach allows students to learn at a pace that is right for them while encouraging teamwork and building social and academic confidence.

Kirby students leave kindergarten fully prepared to transition to and succeed in any first grade program.

Students participate in a foreign language class, music and have access to a full gym, Kirby’s age appropriate, state-of-the-art playground and expansive outdoor recreation facilities to insure developmentally necessary physical activity.
