Programs & Curriculum / Kindergarten

Our kindergarten is a full day (9-3) licensed program. We are licensed by the Nevada Department of Education and as such must adhere to the same guidelines as all licensed schools. The curriculum incorporates the Common Core Standards that have been adopted by Nevada.

The class size in kindergarten is capped at twelve, enabling each student to receive maximum individual attention.

“…ideal setting because of small size…the teacher was exactly what each boy needed…”

E.C. mother of 4 All Saints’ students

“In kindergarten it was clear that such a small class size, individual instruction and assignments were part of the daily routine.”

V.F. mother of 2 All Saints’ students

We are partners with the United Way of Southern Nevada and The Urban League
