 The Adventurer curriculum is divided into six levels.
  • The Little Lamb is for pre-kindergarten or 4 year olds.
  • The Eager Beaver is for kindergarten or 5 year olds
  • The Busy Bee level is for first-grade.
  • The Sunbeam level for second-grade.
  • The Builder for third-grade.
  • The Helping Hand for fourth-graders.
Each level builds on the levels which came before it and is especially designed to interest, challenge, and provide successful experiences for children of that grade level.
