Kindergarten Readiness

A successful kindergarten program:

  • Meets the academic, physical, social, and emotional needs of the child.
  • Respects family and cultural influences.
  • Integrates curriculum for engagement and literacy.
  • Encourages child-guided learning for language and social skills.
  • Personalizes instruction for every child.
  • Utilizes play for social and imaginative development.
  • Instills a love for learning and fosters lifelong learning habits.


  • Kindergarten is a prerequisite to first grade
  • Children must be five-years-old on or before September 1st
  • Kindergarten is a full day program. However, if you are interested in a half-day option, please discuss this with your home school principal before deciding.

The transition from 4K to 5K (kindergarten) is an exciting time for you and your child. Your excitement and confidence will help your child view school as a fun, positive place to be.
