This enrichment program is for students preparing to enter kindergarten. The primary focus of the program is to provide children with the tools necessary to advance their skills in core academic areas such as literacy, math, and science. Along with providing an enhanced curriculum, our teachers also foster the healthy development of key social and emotional skills. Students build their confidence as they are exposed to learning activities that promote creative thinking and problem solving. This enrichment program also includes time each day for students to participate in fun outside activities led by the teacher and teacher's assistant. This is an all day program.
