Stepping up to Kindergarten

Jun 24th, 2019

Pre-k classes represent an important experience for kids. Many of our students come from neighborhoods with high rates of poverty. They face challenges to success that their more affluent peers do not. Some come from refugee families for whom pre-k is an introduction to American school customs.

Our pre-k classes help kids and families prepare for kindergarten. They make friends, learn about good school behaviors, and they develop basic reading, writing and learning skills. Today, many of our students graduated. The classes pictured in these photos are the four-year-old classrooms who will be heading to kindergarten in the fall. Congratulations!
