Kamaliʻi (3-6 Years)
The Primary program (3-6 year olds) is a dual Hawaiian language environment. This program emphasizes the development of psychomotor and perceptual skills, social and cognitive abilities. The environment aims to instill a sense of order and independence and combines coordination of movement with concentration. The culture-based curriculum is kinesthetic; learning through whole body experiences rather than only hands on experiences. Starting at the primary level, children are presented lessons in sensorial, math, language arts, geography, history, zoology, botany, and practical life. Polynesian voyaging and navigation is integrated in all areas of the environment.
