We offer both a five full-day kindergarten program and a five afternoon kindergarten enrichment program from 12:00-3:00. Our full-day kindergarten class offers a mixed-age setting in the morning where the oldest children in the class become the role models and leaders of the group, reinforcing their own learning by helping the younger children. In the afternoon the full-day kindergarteners join with other children who arrive from the area public school kindergartens.
