Reasons to Consider Begindergarten:
Frequently Asked Questions
What do students learn?
Each child is different and will learn whatever it is he or she needs to be ready for Kindergarten next year.
What is the minimum age for Begindergarten?
Students must be 5 years of age by September 15th of the academic year. Begindergarten is not preschool, but a next step for students who are ready for more than preschool but not quite ready for kindergarten work.
Is Begindergarten part-time or full-time?
Whether Begindergarten is full or half- time (mornings only) depends on the needs of the child, including the child’s maturity and home life.
Is Begindergarten right for my child?
Begindergarten is not necessary for every student. Whether it is right for your child is a decision that should be based on their unique needs. Our Head of School — Bethany Wirin — would be happy to meet with you and help you make a confident decision about your child’s next academic step.
