Welcome to Let’s Get Ready for Kindergarten. Our program is aimed at preparing your child for a smooth transition to kindergarten. Through the City of Walnut, our classes are offered year round – winter, spring, summer, and fall. The material and projects that we present in each course are new and non-repetitive, so we encourage you to sign up for each session as we continue to cover the alphabet, phonemic awareness (the sounds each letter makes), numbers, math concepts, science/social studies, as well as scissor and pencil skills.

We believe that children learn best when they are given the opportunity to actively participate in the learning process, and our program is designed to promote this philosophy. Each day, children are encouraged to explore, test ideas, and draw conclusions through hands-on activities that will result in the acquisition of new knowledge and skills. Students will participate in individual, small group, and whole class activities that are centered around a common theme and incorporate different modes of learning. We help to develop self-esteem by encouraging students to take initiative, help themselves, and become increasingly independent.
