• Kindergarten is a child and family’s first introduction to Dutch Hill Elementary. Partnerships are developed during the year between teachers and families that provide a strong community of support. We provide children with a variety of opportunities to try out new ideas and be challenged with new experiences that engage budding readers, writers, scientists, mathematicians and artists in a safe and welcoming environment. As teachers we work to help the children to be empowered, to feel valued, to be safe and successful in school. We share in your excitement as we embark in this journey together!
