Kindergarten is all about learning to learn!
Kindergarten is a time for children to expand their love of learning, their general knowledge, their ability to get along with others, and their interest in reaching out to the world. In Kindergarten, at Queen of the Rosary Catholic Academy, we present a well-rounded faith-based curriculum that encourages a lifelong love of learning and prepares our children to confidently enter first grade.
