Jardin de la Infancia is organized around the belief that poor children can achieve at the same academic level as their more affluent peers when provided the same educational opportunities. All children at Jardin are eligible for the Federal Free/Reduced Meals Program, most started school as English-language learners and all come from families living on incomes below the poverty line. Increasing educational opportunities for disadvantaged children in the early years is far more effective than later interventions. Skills lead to higher skills. Success in kindergarten creates the confidence and momentum necessary for mastery of knowledge in each successive grade. Jardin has high academic standards; good classroom management, positive reinforcement and cooperation, explicit teaching of skills, frequent reading and writing practice, and strong cross-curricular connections.
*A current Multiple Subject teaching credential (internship, preliminary, or clear)
