For Early Learners, BASIS Independent Fremont’s Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program offers students the opportunity to foster a love for learning through developmentally appropriate play, music, and hands-on activities that help make high-level material more accessible. We spent a day with our Transitional Kindergarten classes to give you a look into a typical day in our TK program.
When families begin learning about our Early Learning and Primary programs, they often ask us the same question: “Why do we teach Mandarin to all our students?"
Mandarin is a required part of our curriculum from Transitional Kindergarten to Grade 4 because Mandarin provides our early learners with the opportunity to engage both sides of their brains.
Dr. Leyba, our Head of School at BASIS Independent Fremont, has been completely committed to creating the best possible learning experience for our students this year. She knows how difficult it is to find the right school for your child, especially during this unique and unprecedented time. Dr. Leyba wants to provide families with the right information and tools so that they may make an informed and confident decision about what school their child(ren) should attend. Read on to learn what Dr. Leyba has to say!
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Fremont is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
