Kindergarten Enrichment Classes

At schools where the kindergarteners have early out, this is a special program just for our youngest learners. With hands-on learning experiences that integrate math, literacy, and social skills in meaningful ways, students create while building friendships. This program helps the children quickly make and deepen friendships while increasing confidence during school. Each class follows this routine:

  • Story Time Literacy
  • Imaginative Literacy and Math Play
  • Student Presentations

Special Note to Hatch, Roy Cloud, North and West K Parents:
