Both campuses of Runnels School will be CLOSED tomorrow, April 18 due to forecasts of enhanced risks of severe weather in the Baton Rouge area. All activities and field trips scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed. With safety as our primary concern, we are closing out of an abundance of caution. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of this decision.

Kindergarten Overview

The Runnels Kindergarten is a world of exploration, discovery, and wonder. Our comprehensive, creative and challenging curriculum is designed to engage young imaginations, stimulate curiosity, and ignite a love of learning.

Learning takes place in a joyful, stimulating, and reassuring environment where the individual needs, temperaments, and personalities of each child are recognized, valued and respected.

During the school day, children participate in small groups for language arts, phonics, mathematics, handwriting, science, social studies, art, music, and fitness. In addition, they receive one-on-one instruction in both reading and math every day during “Cubby Time.”

At Runnels, uniforms are not required and dress is casual.
