Knox County Schools believes children begin learning before they begin Kindergarten. Our mission is to prepare children and their families to be kindergarten ready. Early years are learning years.
Preparing children for the future involves meeting the child at their developmental level and moving them forward though active learning experiences. Teaching the whole child includes areas of self-awareness, social and emotional development, self-help and independence, physical development, creative arts, as well as language, literacy, science and mathematics.
Working with families is vital to student success. Parents and families are important teachers for their children and key partners with school staff as together we envision a successful school career.
Curriculum standards (Connect 4 Learning) and state standards (Tennessee Early Learning and Developmental Standards) align with Kindergarten Common Core Standards.
