Learning Opportunities 

Kindergarten Students spend the greater portion of their day in reading readiness and mathematics readiness activities. LUMP-K uses the Zaner-Bloser Meet the SuperKids reading program. This program appeals to all five of the students senses and affords excellent results. Supplementary materials are used to further meet the individual needs of the kindergarten student.

The Kindergarten uses the Kindergarten CORE Units Math program. We feel that this program offers the young child the necessary base upon which to build his or her future math experiences.

The Science for Today & Tomorrow program provides an individual, hands-on approach to beginning science concepts, as the students explore the world around them using the scientific method.

A pre-screening and post-evaluation program is used to asses the children’s progress in all developmental areas including reading and math.
