Kindergarten Readiness Class

 

​This 5-day/week class encompasses everything we teach throughout the week.  Open only to entering Kindergartners, children are taught at a higher level in this class.  This include a higher level of phonemic awareness and reading, through games, activities, and projects. In addition, this class gives children a more in-depth experience through activities such as painting outside like Monet, or collecting leaves and inspecting them under a microscope to examine variations in pigmentation.
