This 6 Month Crash Course will have our youngest scholars ready to jump start Kindergarten in the Fall! Our class will have times every meeting assigned to learning, play, and being active. Our course will contain materials and lessons that are age appropriate, interesting, encourage self-exploration, creates a community of learners, and promotes mastering of desired areas.
In this Kindergarten Readiness course students we will be covering many fun subjects and new adventures all while engaging, interacting, and exploring skills in fun ways!
