Children must have their fifth birthday by Dec. 2 of their enrollment year. Children move on to grade one when their sixth birthday falls before spring (March/early April). Therefore some children spend one year, others two, in the kindergarten.
Yuba River Charter School has two mixed-aged kindergarten classes, the Rose Kindergarten and the Lavender Kindergarten. Infants and young children are entirely given over to their physical surroundings; they absorb the world primarily through their senses and respond in the most active mode of knowing: imitation. Imitation is the power to identify oneself with one’s environment through one’s active will. more info
