Our full day, developmental Kindergarten program includes an exciting, hands-on approach to specialist and core academic learning, across a wide range of subjects: science, art, music, theater, PE, Spanish, reading, writing, handwriting, word study, and math. An added benefit is Cascade Canyon’s unique learning community: students in grades K-8 travel, perform, play, and celebrate learning together throughout the year. The school also places a strong emphasis on children's social-emotional growth, and provides ample opportunities for cross-age mentorship, guided practice in naming and expressing feelings and needs, and a collaborative, school-wide approach to conflict mediation.

She specializes in newborn and maternity portraiture, and also offers baby, child and family photo sessions.

Enter a Ross Valley Charter kindergarten/first grade classroom and you discover a joyful buzz of activity. Scanning the room, you notice a group of children happily constructing a marble run with blocks and PVC pipes, others playing a math game with a parent, and some outside observing wildlife with magnifying glasses and notebooks. Amidst the action, you locate the teacher, sitting on the rug with a small group of students forming letters on mini chalkboards. A girl approaches: “Would you like to see the painting I’m working on?”
