The school readiness preschool program prepares three-, four-, and five-year-old children for kindergarten. The curriculum is aligned with the school district’s academic curriculum and licensed teachers monitor child progress and development throughout the school year.
The preschool environment encourages learning and development through play, which helps children practice skills and make sense of ideas, concepts and language.
Children gain skills and experience in:
• Learning to follow routines and rules.
• Learning to get along with other children.
• Literacy, books and writing.
• Math, science, art and music.
Classes take place from September to May at locations across the school district. Morning, afternoon and evening times are available.
The kindergarten readiness preschool program is designed for four-year-old children who are learning to speak English and for English-speaking children from families who meet income guidelines.
Students should be four years of age by Sept. 1 to register for the 2013-2014 school year.
The curriculum prepares students for kindergarten by incorporating reading, math, social skills, science, writing, art, music, large muscle, computer and group learning activities.
Classes are September through May at Wilson Elementary School and at the Anoka-Hennepin School District Educational Service Center. Students attend class Monday through Thursday, in either the morning or afternoon for 2.75 hours per day. There is no cost to eligible families and transportation is provided.
