Children entering kindergarten, who have not participated in a preschool experience, are invited to participate in a unique opportunity to prepare for formal schooling. In this six week, half-day summer program, children will become familiar with school routines, work on kindergarten readiness skills, begin building relationships with classmates, be introduced to Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) and begin experiencing the kindergarten curriculum.
Parents will become accustomed to school routines, kindergarten readiness skills, and expectations for learning, become acquainted with the parents of their children’s classmates, develop skills of positive parent-teacher communication, and begin a pattern of school involvement. The curricular focus will include literacy, mathematics, handwriting, and social behavioral skills.
There is limited space available and students will be selected through a lottery process in April. Please fill out the lottery application and mail or deliver it to:
