Early Kindergarten Program

We are excited to announce that Northside Prep will be implementing an Early Kindergarten Program starting in Fall 2020! The Early K program is a dedicated class that focuses on preparing your child for academic success.

Developed with the ACCEL Schools Academic Team, our Early Kindergarten Program focuses on each child’s physical, social, and cognitive development. Our teaching approach uses meaningful playtime and learning materials that are centered around young children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn.

  • Free, full-day program for children ages 4-5
  • Full year (August – May) program
  • Applicants must turn five years old by January 1st
  • A brief Kindergarten assessment is required during the registration process

Our Early Kindergarten Program teacher will be in regular communication with you throughout the year to discuss your child’s progress toward his or her individual learning goals.

“Starting school is the beginning of a special journey for each child,” says Principal Clark. “Our Early Kindergarten Program gives Northside Prep students a strong start and foundation for lifelong learning.”
