High Quality Kindergarten
Impacts Future Academic Success
Research illustrates that students who receive long-term, high-quality education perform better on literacy and math. This includes teacher-student interactions, academic approach, and quality of school environment.
We offer free full day kindergarten! Parents can enroll their child in free half day kindergarten or free full day kindergarten. If you are interested in enrolling your child in the half day program, please indicate this on your pre-enrollment form.
FREE Half Day Kindergarten 8:00 am – 11:15 am
The half day kindergarten program is scheduled from 8:00 am to 11:15 am daily. Our academic kindergarten continues to be offered in the morning to provide both half and full day kindergarten programming. Academic state standards will be covered during the morning session in all classes.
FREE Full Day Kindergarten 8:00 am – 3:15 pm
The kindergarten day is extended into a full school day by incorporating the former enrichment program into the full day curriculum. Combining kindergarten with enrichment compliments the academic day, allowing students to attend a full school day from 8:00 am to 3:15 pm daily.
Full day kindergarten offers the opportunity to explore more broadly and deeply the academic performance objective areas set by the Arizona Department of Education. The full day curriculum provides a greater focus on science, history/social studies, presenting skills and social development. Topics covered within this curriculum also include geography, geology, animal classifications and life cycles, the human body structure/senses, animal habitats, some Native American tribes, American presidents, and the 50 states.
Full day kindergarten is not a “drop in” program. Families must choose the half or full day. Additional questions concerning enrollment can be forwarded to the school registrar.
