At Golden Pond School, we understand these formative years set the foundation for your child's future academic successes. According to a recent article by Harvard University , it is easier to form strong brain circuits during these early years. The experiences in a child's first 5 years affect the development of brain architecture, which provides the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health.  Read the complete article here !

Program Spotlight: Kindergarten

Our Kindergartners  don't just learn about Washington D.C. - they experience it! The excitement is palpable as the charter bus crosses the Potomac and the children spot the monuments. There is nothing like visiting our nation's capital city with our friends, parents and teachers. The highlight of the day is always the tour of the Capital Building which is a treasured memory for our Kindergarten families.  Learn More >

Program Spotlight:
Music + Movement 

The power of song is incredible! When Music and Movement are combined with printed words and verses we see a direct correlation to early reading skills. Golden Pond School provides each child with an introduction to music through musical play and song in a developmentally appropriate manner in conjunction with our monthly themes.

What our Golden Pond Families are Saying

"The growth I observed in our son in full day kindergarten was incredible! His interest is varied and in depth because of the monthly units, plus I love the daily Spanish lessons! Golden Pond met and exceeded all of our needs and expectations. It's the best choice we could have ever made." -- Susan, GPS Parent
