  1. What is kindergarten?

    Kindergarten is a two-year, full-day program that helps children get the best possible start in school. Your child will be challenged and encouraged to do their very best. Our caring team of educators, including a teacher and an early childhood educator, are with them every step of the way! They are also a great resource for you to talk with.

    Online registration is now open!Why is kindergarten important?

    • Early learning experiences are crucial to the future well-being of children
    • Early interactions affect the way connections are made in the brain
    • A solid foundation for reading and math must be built
    • Children build skills through developmentally appropriate play-based experiences


  2. When can my child attend?

    Your child is eligible for the two-year kindergarten program in the calendar year that they turn four or five.
    Your child must attend school if they are age six by September 1.
