Summer Bridging Activities

1st Grade Here We Come!

Dear EC Kindergarten Families,

We wanted you to have options to continue your child's learning throughout the summer months. Below, not only will you will find different opportunities to help your child strengthen the kindergarten standards they have learned this year, but also help them get a head start on 1st grade standards. We hope you find these suggestions helpful and useful. We miss all our Kinder Cubs and can't wait to see them and all of you again (in person) sooner rather than later. Our best to you all. Stay safe and healthy.
