Enriched Curriculum | Camp Mohawk

Our enriched curriculum combines language and literacy development, math concepts, hands-on science activities, cultural awareness, creative arts and outdoor and indoor play. Our staff includes two full-time music teachers, a foreign language specialist, a physical education teacher and a computer specialist.

The program is carefully balanced between teacher-directed and child-centered activities. School days include a comfortable mix of structure and play, with daily projects, snacks, stories and circle times, and activities that introduce children to basic science, language and math concepts.
What makes our curriculum unique?

  • A DAILY music program (in fully-equipped music rooms) that includes sing-alongs, holiday concerts, beginning instruments, piano for K-1 students and an amazing, fun-filled introduction to Classical composers.
  • A physical education program, taught in an indoor gym and on outdoor fields.
  • An introduction to computers for 4- and 5-year-olds, held in our own dedicated Computer Lab.
  • An exploration of Mohawk’s farm site, with our year-round animal farm, grape arbor for making jelly, orchard for apple-picking and maple trees for tapping syrup.
  • And age-appropriate exposure to foreign languages and cultures.

 

A Word about Our Kindergarten and 1st Grade Programs

Mohawk offers several age- and developmentally-appropriate Kindergarten and First Grade classes, which accommodate each child’s learning pace and style.
Our Mini-Kindergarten class is designed for children eligible for Kindergarten who could benefit from additional preparation and maturing. Our Young Kindergarten class offers families time to determine whether their child should move into a First Grade or a Kindergarten the following year. Finally, our traditional and highly enriched Kindergarten/First Grade class offers more advanced opportunities for children who qualify.
Mohawk Country Day School is chartered by the State of New York, and children who successfully complete our program readily progress to excellent public and private elementary schools.
