Cardinal Head Kindergarten Readiness Class

The kindergarten readiness class will again be offered in the Upsala School District beginning August 4, 2014. The purpose of the program will be to provide a preschool experience to children before they enter a formal school program in Kindergarten. Therefore, the program will be available to any child who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2014 and is not yet enrolled in Kindergarten.

Some of the skills that we expect children to learn by attending this program include: following a routine in a classroom, becoming more comfortable with a brief separation from family or daycare provider, learning to play and work cooperatively with other children, becoming more comfortable with unfamiliar adults, learning about school bus transportation, and other preschool experiences. This Kindergarten Readiness Class is not intended to emphasize academic skills such as alphabet and numbers.

The Upsala Kindergarten Readiness Class is tentatively set to run Monday through Thursday the weeks of August 4th- August 14th and will be held at the Upsala Elementary School. Children who are enrolled in the program will attend morning sessions from 9:00 - 11:30 am. Students will either go Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday each week.
