Kindercamp!

Towards the end of summer, newly enrolled NDV Kindergarteners are invited to attend the NDV Dragon Camp! This 2 week camp is in August before the start of the school year, and is a wonderful way to get students ready to start their Kindergarten year at NDV. Students will meet new classmates, participate in daily art activities, play in the classroom and on the school yard, and become more familiar with their surroundings. Students will also meet and become familiar with teachers, which helps ease the transition at the beginning of the year. Our goals for Dragon Camp are:
  • L e a r n the names of their teachers and classmates.
  • E x p l o r e different parts of the School including our playground, how to get to our classroom, the gym, and the Chapel.
  • P r a c t i c e classroom routines.
  • E n s u r e all students are excited for Kindergarten!

Watch the video below to meet the remarkable staff at NDV!
