This three-quarter day program is designed to meet and
exceed the expectations of a typical kindergarten program. The small class size allows more one-on-one interaction between the student and the teacher. Learning to function in a group, yet maintaining their individuality is our goal. Our approach to the “Core” may be a little more “hands-on,” but the goals are to meet and exceed the standard. Each child will be encouraged to advance at his/her own pace. Our program is recognized by the MSDE. Children that meet the kindergarten age requirement (5th birthday by August 31 of the current school year) and complete our program are eligible for SMCPS 1st grade in the next school year.

*Note: Transitional Kindergarten-In collaboration with our
Kindergarten program are for those younger 5 year old
children with their 5th birth date falling between September 1-
December 1 of the current school year who may be ready to complete a Kindergarten Program. SMCPS may not recognize their completion as admittance to Public 1st Grade in fall of the next school year. Parents must obtain a waiver from SMCPS System for early admittance.

Not all children in this age group are ready for a kindergarten program through the TK; this is to be determined at the discretion of their current teacher.




Stay tuned for the 2021-2022 schedule.
