Kindergarten for Utah's Young Learners
In kindergarten, a child's sense of wonder easily carries them from one discovery to another. Wonder is such a strong learning motivator that the tuition-free* K12-powered online school in Utah offers kindergarten students a program that taps into their natural inquisitiveness and develops an academic foundation for their successful learning in the future.
Public School from Home
Like the brick-and-mortar schools you're probably familiar with, the online school in Utah powered by K12 provides instruction from state-licensed teachers, support from counselors and school staff, and meaningful learning experiences using quality curriculum. The difference is your child can attend school from the safety and comfort of home or wherever the internet is available.
Also, the Learning Coach—the parent or another responsible adult—plays an important role in their child's education. The Learning Coach helps guide the student so they can stay on their academic schedule, assists with hands-on learning activities, records daily attendance, and communicates with teachers. This daily interaction of about 3 to 6 hours a day lets a parent know firsthand how their student is progressing. Plus, state-licensed teachers provide additional support and oversight, conduct live online classes, and are available to answer parents' questions.
Combining Traditional and 21st-Century Learning
The curriculum for kindergarteners at Utah's K12-powered online school brings together the best of a traditional approach to education within a 21st-century virtual environment. Online lessons in math, English, science, and history as well as art and music combine hands-on learning activities using education materials delivered to your door.† Printed books, math manipulatives, and more let your child explore key concepts with the help of their hands, which is how they learn best! In grades K–5, the curriculum is mastery-based, letting your child learn at their own pace. And the K12-powered online school in Utah offers kindergarteners an Advanced Learner Program for gifted and talented students.
