This dynamic and engaging Kindergarten program will enrich and support what you do at home or act as a stand alone program providing curriculum guidance ensuring an excellent foundation for your child. Our program is a 2 day program on Monday’s and Thursdays from 8:30-11:50 am. *When you enroll your child for this class, they will automatically be enrolled the entire class time on both days. Your child is welcome to stay for a supervised lunch/recess program after class is over and join the rest of our ILA students if you want to sign them up for additional classes in the afternoon. There are several kinder friendly classes available until 3:10 pm that they are sure to love.
