CALLING ALL KINDERGARTNERS - IT IS TIME TO REGISTER
If you have a child attending kindergarten in the fall, it is very important that you register as soon as possible. We are doing a great deal of planning around staffing and classes so the sooner we know, the better. Kindergarten is for children who will be at least 5 years old as of September 1, 2023. On June 12th, we will be opening our building to new families and kinders to tour the school. To register your child for kindergarten, please click here: REGISTRATION LINK
TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN ONLINE APPLICATION OPEN
After a successful launch of our new Transitional Kindergarten program in January 2023, we are proud to continue the program into the 2023-24 school year. Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a free, full-day early entrance kindergarten program for children who will be 4 years old as of September 1, 2023. This program does not replace kindergarten, but rather is a pre-kindergarten experience meant to serve four year olds.
Students are eligible for the program if they have not had prior access to learning experiences and/or have been identified through a screening process as being in need of additional preparation based on academic or social-emotional deficits to be ready for kindergarten the following year.
The program begins in October 2023, though applications are being accepted starting May 17 on our TK website. Classes are taught be highly qualified teachers and transportation will be provided. Space is limited. Our goal is to provide families with the opportunity to ensure their students begin their school careers ready for kindergarten. Transitional K Registration Link
