Pre-K & Little Cats

Students who turn four on or before September 1, 2023 are eligible for pre-kindergarten classes. Pre-kindergarten classes have been shown to increase language and literacy skills, boost confidence in students and increase test scores. Pre-kindergarten classes follow the same schedule as elementary school classes. Students learn how to behave in a classroom setting, work with their peers and adjust to a school schedule. By the time a student graduates from pre-kindergarten, they are fully prepared and ready for kindergarten.
