Your Kindergartener can experience a fun-filled and highly motivating summer program, which will reinforce balanced literacy and math skills. Help your child leap into First Grade this summer by increasing his/her self-confidence and academic skills.

This class is run in the same format of a typical Kindergarten day so that students can continue with their known routines such as morning meeting, Workboard, and Guided Reading groups. Daily individual assessments will be used to modify the curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student. Teachers will use various teaching methods, including whole group, small group, and individual instruction to work with each child on his/her level. Two experienced teachers will reinforce and expand the knowledge and skills your child gained this year in a low child/teacher ratio environment. Students will review basic Reading, Writing, and Math skills through various themes, which will also incorporate Art, Music, and Movement activities. Students will have many opportunities to strengthen social skills as well.

We will be located at the ABECC We will meet you outside of the main doors each morning. Snack and juice will be provided each day. Class size is limited. Please include a note with your registration if you have questions regarding your child and the directors will contact you.

Registration will open on April 1, 2019 online through Community Programs –  You can visit the EXCEL Programs page, and then click on the orange "Online Portal" button. You may also register in person at the Community Programs office at 566 Main St.
