We have found Kindergarten Connection to be the single most effective way to help smooth the transition into our school.
To help our youngest and newest students succeed, our program is facilitated by our kindergarten team and designed to mirror our school year routines. The children have the opportunity in a relaxed summer environment to begin to make new friends with their classmates, polish their readiness skills, and get to know their teachers. We so value the difference Kindergarten Connection makes for our youngest students that all incoming kindergartners are expected to participate. By doing so we can ensure in September, they will come “back” to school feeling confident and comfortable. Kindergartners are highly encouraged to attend the Kindergarten Connection in its entirety; however, attendance during selected weeks is acceptable.
For parents in need of childcare, daycare is available 7:30 – 9 a.m. before Kindergarten Connection and after the Parker-Anderson Summer Program from 4 - 6 p.m,available on an as needed basis for $9.50/hr. Occasional daycare will be billed at the end of the summer session.
