KINDERGARTEN BRIDGE

TUESDAY - FRIDAY

9:15 - 11:30

11:30 - 1:00 (extension)

This program is geared toward children who are turning 5 prior to December 1st.  Kindergarten Bridge (“KB”) is a Kindergarten readiness class, typically serving students who are eligible for Kindergarten, but opting to wait for various reasons.  Children in this class will work towards K standards in an environment that is beneficial to young learners.  The KB program is broken down into two parts: class from 9:15 AM – 11:30 AM, then an extension from 11:30 AM – 1 PM.  This extension includes a continuation of learning and activities, as well as time to eat a packed lunch.  The combination of these two parts helps students develop stamina for a longer school day.  *Please note: The 4/5 program is designed with the expectation that families will choose to enroll their child in both parts of the program.  The extension is only available to students in the 4/5 class.
