Students must be 5 years old by September 1. We do not perform early testing for kindergarten. Enrollment priority consideration will be given to siblings and students who participate in our Pre-Kindergarten program. New students may be subject to kindergarten pre-screening interviews prior to application acceptance.
The Full-Day Kindergarten program at Calibre Academy offers a curriculum-based focus on core language arts. It is a comprehensive reading and writing program known for its systematic instruction in phonological and phonemic awareness and phonics.
Our math program uses an active approach developed through hands-on activities and rich mathematical conversations to actively engage students in the learning process. Concepts are introduced, reviewed, and practiced over time, allowing students to move from the concrete to the pictorial to the abstract.
At Calibre, science and social studies are all about exploration. Students are exposed to hands-on activities, ranging from watching caterpillars form cocoons and morph into butterflies to visiting fire stations. Basic technology, art, music and physical education skills are taught in Kindergarten as well via our special areas classes.

As a Full Time Kindergarten, we have an excellent learning system for what can be a challenging subject such as Math. We teach with a hands-on approach while discussing the concepts using verbal and physical demonstrations to guide them through all the math concepts a Full-Day Kindergarten should offer. We recognize that each child may learn differently, which is why we strive to provide kids with different ways of learning.
As with Math, we have taught many of our programs with hands-on activities. In our science program we teach them by showing examples of the subject matter:
Watch Caterpillars form Cocoons
Cocoons morph into butterflies
In our Social Studies class, because we are Full Time Kindergarten, we get to visit a Fire Station! This gives the children a lesson in community resources and who the members of our community are. And who doesn’t love fire trucks?
We have special area classes for:
As we all know a child’s first year in Kindergarten can be the biggest transition in a child’s education. They need to learn all of their first basic educational tools well and correctly to be able to build off of this with their school career. We do this with praise and positivity. Our All Day Kindergarten near Surprise, AZ, is here to meet all of the needs of your 5-year-old. We are excited to see all the children that came from our Pre-Kindergarten class. We give them priority in registrations. We welcome any newcomers as well!
Yes, full-day Kindergarten can be very beneficial for students as it provides them with more opportunities to learn and develop. By having a full day of instruction and activities, students can better prepare themselves for the years of life-long learning ahead.
Full-day Kindergarten is important because it helps lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning. During this time, students will be introduced to the basic skills and concepts that will form the building blocks for their future education.
