Kindergarten FAQ

Schedule

Kindergarten is offered from 7:55 am - 2:00 pm.  Additional hours are available through our Extended Care Program from 7:00 am - 7:55 am and 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm.

Ratios

Our kindergarten program can accept a maximum of 30 children per classroom. Each kindergarten classroom is staffed by a full-time credentialed teacher, as well as two instructional assistants. Our staffing rations in kindergarten are superior to the California state requirements for a 12:1 ratio in Kindergarten by proving a 8:1 ratio. This level of staffing better serves the individualized learning needs of children at this special age.

Age cutoff

The California Department of Education requires that children be five by September 1.

Kindergarten facilities

Our two dedicated kindergarten classrooms were specially designed to meet the needs of our younger students. Children in these classrooms have a self-contained facility that provides separate restrooms for boys and girls, as well as a play area directly outside of their classrooms. In addition, kindergarten is given a special schedule that offers priority access to the campus playground facilities each day, as well as a daily extended care program where age-appropriate enrichment activities are provided.
