Tailored for the Needs of Young Learners
Welcome to the Kindergarten Program at Bethany School, where we understand the importance of a nurturing academic environment for our youngest learners. At our private school, Kindergarten means believing in the power of hands-on experiences to teach essential life skills such as following directions, collaborating effectively, and exploring the world through all senses.
Our Kindergarten curriculum at Bethany School is meticulously crafted to enhance problem-solving abilities and early literacy skills, essential for every Kindergarten student. Each day our kindergarten classes are filled with opportunities for creative expression and skill-building. The students engage in art activities to interactive projects that promote fine motor development. Kindergarten private schools are an excellent way to start your student off on the right path for their schooling years. A private school kindergarten class focuses on building a path for the the future.

Small Class Sizes
At Bethany School, we have a student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, and a limit of 15 students per classroom. Our small class sizes ensure personalized learning experiences for every student by providing individualized attention. Children develop rapidly by having personal attention with certified teachers at Bethany School.
Our little ones love their Kindergarten teachers! Our teachers create a safe, loving, and nurturing environment for children to thrive. They cultivate a love of learning. You will regularly see our elementary school children run up to their Kindergarten teachers to say hi, hug, or give a high five.
Music & Movement
Our little ones at Kindergarten get the chance to dance, sing, and express themselves creatively every week during their music class, where the harmony between movement and rhythm inspires them to embrace a lifelong love of music.
Spanish classes are a fundamental part of our kindergarten curriculum, as we believe multilingual communication skills are crucial for success in both school and life. Our approach to teaching Spanish is centered on fun and engaging activities, such as games and songs, to encourage a love of learning from a cultural perspective. Our kindergarteners have the opportunity to participate in twice-weekly Spanish classes and various activities that expose them to the language and culture in a natural and enjoyable way.
Bethany School is located on a 23 acre campus filled with nature and beauty. Our students learn in the most energy efficient, LEED Platinum certified buildings in the Midwest. Our greenhouse, community gardens, and waste reduction programs give young students unique opportunities to learn about nature and how to be good stewards of it.
Library & Technology
Our library is not your average quiet space. With a slide and a LEGO wall, our students are encouraged to play and explore while being surrounded by high-quality literature. Through read-alouds, author visits, reading clubs, and themed activities, students are nurtured in their love of reading and taught essential skills such as taking care of books and identifying the parts of a book.
Hands On Learning
Field trips are an important part of the academic experience at Bethany School. Our elementary school students participate in a variety of educational field trips and outreach programs every year to connect real-world, hands-on experiences to what they’re learning in the classroom.
At Bethany School, our roots are grounded in Episcopal traditions, and we value respect and coexistence with all faiths. We honor the worth and beauty of every human being, and our religion class centers around teaching students about Bible stories and religious traditions. In addition to a weekly chapel service, students attend religion classes twice a week to foster a deeper understanding of spiritual beliefs.
