About Kindergarten

Kindergarten is where students begin the educational path.  They learn about getting around a school building, sharing, cleaning up after themselves, following a schedule, obeying rules, and making friends. For a young child, these are huge milestones to conquer without the help of a parent.

Why Kindergarten Teachers are Special

Kindergarten teachers leave an indelible mark on students hearts. Kindergarten teachers use exciting, fun, engaging hands-on teaching methods. They incorporate games, music, books, art, and computers into daily lessons. They ensure that children enjoy their school day every day, and they lay the foundation to love learning. 

National Kindergarten Day

Why do we celebrate on April 21st?

April 21 is the birthday of Wilhelm August Frobel (1782-1852), the founder of kindergarten. Frobel’s first kindergarten opened in 1837 in Germany.  He coined the term “kindergarten”, which combines the German “kinder” (children) and “garten” (garden). Frobel said “Children are like tiny flowers; they are varied and need care, but each is beautiful alone and glorious when seen in the community of peers.”

Clear Creek ISD Kindergarten Random Acts of Kindness
Ward Elementary kinder students in Clear Creek ISD participated in a school-wide service learning project for Random Acts of Kindness Day where they collected snacks for local fire stations in the area.

Every April 21st is the annual National Kindergarten Day celebration!  We are reminded of the Robert Fulghum book title-turned famous quote, “All I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten”.
