CHC's curriculum for Kindergarten distinguishes between core and non-core subjects. Core subjects are the "basic essentials" of education for a particular grade, such as reading, science, and religion. Non-core subjects, such as art and music, can be added as time, interest, and finances allow. Visit the Kindergarten Interactive Guide to take a subject-by-subject tour of core and non-core materials, including printable sample pages that can be used to determine grade placement!
The Kindergarten Core Kit includes all the core materials for Kindergarten except for math and literature, which can be purchased more affordably from other sources. The recommended math and literature books are listed below along with information on where to purchase them.

CHC Lesson Plans for Kindergarten
