Let's talk about 5K!

  • While kindergarten is mandated by the state, it's still a very exciting time in your child's life as he or she continues to grow!

  • Kindergarten provides children with opportunities to learn strategies they will use throughout school.  These include social, emotional, problem-solving, and study skills.

  • Kindergarten helps children grow in their abilities to work, learn, and get along with others. These kinds of social and emotional learning skills will be used throughout their school years and into adulthood.

  • Kindergarten is a place where our highly qualified teachers provide fun and engaging activities for sparking and directing children’s natural curiosity and love of learning.

  • Kindergarten helps young children learn about (and from) the world, organize information, and solve real-world problems.
