Young Fives

  • Young Fives is designed for students who are eligible for kindergarten, but require more time to further develop their emotional, social, physical, and/or cognitive skills. Children must be 5 years old between July 1 and September 1. Parents have the option of requesting a waiver for enrollment if their child's birthday falls after the September 1st cut-off date but before December 1st. The program is tuition-free, as it is funded by the state. Children attend five days per week in either the AM or PM session for the traditional school year. Participation in Young Fives is by parental choice.

    A.M. Young Fives Classes run from 8:00am-11:07am
    P.M. Young Fives Classes run from 12:00pm-3:07pm
