Primary School (PreK3-Sr.K)

Primary School at Gulliver

The Primary School is located at the Academy Marian C. Krutulis Campus and consists of full-day pre-kindergarten (PreK3), junior kindergarten (Jr.K) and senior kindergarten (Sr.K) grade levels. Children must be at least three years old by September 1 and potty trained to enter the program.

PreK3 and Jr.K curriculums are experiential in nature and provide for comprehensive, research-based and developmentally-appropriate approaches to learning. Language and early literacy, mathematics, social and emotional development, as well as fine and gross motor skills are learned in a caring and nurturing environment, under the direction of licensed teachers.

Sr.K builds on this conceptual framework with a more formalized curriculum as a transition to lower school consisting of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. All three grade levels have special area subjects including music, science, physical education and Spanish. 21st century skills and technology, including iPads, are integrated into the curriculum to support learning in all classrooms. Additionally, Sr.K students have weekly computer classes. Fun events occurring throughout the year include holiday and seasonal concerts, sing-alongs, the Primary School Art Fair, field trips and a memorable Sr.K formal graduation ceremony.
