Kindergarten forms the basic building blocks of literacy and arithmetic. NYC students can apply for kindergarten in the year they turn five. In this grade, students will:

  • learn the alphabet (including sounds of letters, words, pronunciations)
  • share ideas and feelings through speech, drawing, writing
  • explore music, movement, and playmaking
  • identify numbers and count up to 100
  • add and subtract numbers up to 10
  • learn about family, school, and community members
  • study plants and animals, and identify certain materials (for example metal and wood) and their characteristics
