PREPARING FOR KINDERGARTEN

‘Kindergarten Readiness’ is a term often used when talking about entering kindergarten.  Our 3- and 4-year-old preschool programs are designed to provide your child with the necessary learning experiences to be ready for kindergarten. Utilizing an approach that aligns with our district’s International Baccalaureate program, your child will participate in learning that will enrich his or her educational journey. As your child progresses through our preschool program, these indicators will be used to ensure a successful transition into kindergarten and beyond.
