Kindergarten (Age 5)

Advanced Prep

Because LBA's four-year-old classes work from Kindergarten gradebooks, the Kindergarten class bounds ahead to a first-grade book.

LBA sets students up for success, covering curriculum a grade ahead, so that when our students face the challenges of first grade, it is no challenge to them. We prepare our students to leap to the front of the pack when they continue their education beyond LBA.

 

Field Trips

Exploring the world, seeing new sights, learning even more than what can be taught within the walls of a classroom – LBA’s kindergarten class does it all.

The 2016 – 2017 class has visited the post office, watched the sky at Griffith Observatory, touched manta rays at Aquarium of the Pacific, seen the Endeavor at the California Science Center, and they’re not done yet! Many more including the happiest place on Earth, DISNEYLAND still await LBA’s kindergarten class (at no extra cost!)

We want the best for our students, so we don’t shy away from giving them just that – the best. We travel all over Los Angeles, so LBA’s Kindergarten students can explore the world, see new sights, and learn about all the possibilities beyond the classroom.

Netiquette

A private (closed group) social media experience - NO online strangers.

Learning social skills through supervised messaging to classmates.

What is Netiquette?

“Netiquette (Internet etiquette) - The governing of what conduct is socially acceptable in an online or digital situation.”

- Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary

Simply put, netiquette is teaching the proper way to use technology responsibly.

All children learn table manners, classroom etiquette, how to play nice with their friends, and so on. Now that technology is becoming an ever more pervasive and integrated part of our lives, it's time to start looking at digital places as a part of real life.

When making an account on a social media site, you get a technical feature guide, but no social guide. In a closed environment, safe from strangers, LBA is offering that guide.
