Starting school is easier when you:

  • know where to go

  • meet the teacher

  • make new friends

  • discover math + reading skills

  • learn school expectations

  • love the new school!

Jump Start is a free school prep for incoming kindergarteners that takes place a few weeks before the school year begins. Students will meet teachers and other kindergartners; learn routines; become familiar with school surroundings; and participate in math, literacy and hands-on learning activities.

Kindergarten Jump Start is free and open to all new kindergarteners!
