Early Kindergarten 

Purpose:  To give younger students who may not be ready for the rigors of an all day academic approach an option for an all-day setting that will provide Kindergarten instruction from a more play based model.  The Early Kindergarten year will help get them more prepared for the expectations of a full academic approach in Kindergarten the following year.


Who:     Five-year olds whose birthday falls on or after May 1st.

    Four-year olds whose birthday falls on or after September 10th.  Four-year olds will only be accepted if they meet four-year old criteria listed below and if room is available once five-year olds    have been accepted.  During registration, all four year olds will be put on the waiting list.  

Seats Available:  Each classroom will have a maximum of 18 spots for Early Kindergarten qualifiers.

Host Sight:  To be Determined
