Full Day Kindergarten at Peppermint Tree in Toms River for Fall 2011

December 10th, 2010 by Valerie Frost-Lewis

Since the Toms River public schools offer only a half day for Kindergarten students, we have received much interest in our Full Day Kindergarten and other Kindergarten options for the 2011-2012 school year, so we are starting registration early for these programs.  We want to save spaces for our interested current Peppermint Tree families, before opening up registration to the public in January. Space is limited!  So we have begun to accept inhouse priority registrations from our current families, and in January, we will open registration up to the general public.

Here is an outline of our Full Day Kindergarten program:  


  • Core academics, taught by a New Jersey Certified Elementary School teacher, based on the Toms River Regional Schools curriculum. (We are coordinating with the Kindergarten Curriculum Supervisor for the Toms River schools, and will assure your child is prepared for First Grade.)
  • Within the full day, we have the opportunity to add in many more hands on activities to deepen the learning of the core curriculum, than can be accomplished in a half-day program.  The children will not be rushed through concepts.  They will have the opportunity for discovery learning and teacher guided learning.
  • The Peppermint Tree Kindergarten program will go beyond the core Kindergarten Literacy and Mathematics curriculum by integrating enriching Science, Social Studies, Music and Art activities into the curriculum to deepen and broaden your child’s understanding of our world.
  • The children will also have ample time to play and socialize both indoors and out, which is an important part of their development.
  • Studies of nature taken right from our outdoor space, based upon the children’s interests, will also be an important aspect of our Science curriculum
