Ready For Kindergarten
  • Ready for Kindergarten is a two days/week program for children 3-5 years old and their parents. Parents and children attend one day each week together, and children attend the second day each week by themselves. Parent/child activities are set up in the classroom on parent attendance days, and parent groups will discuss best ways to help prepare children for a positive transition to Kindergarten. On child only days, children have additional opportunities to practice their pre-kindergarten skills. Class fees are based on a sliding fee scale. No family is excluded for the inability to pay. 

    Enrollment for each school year begins March 1st                                                        2018-2019 School Year registration begins March 1, 2018
