The PEAC Summer Kindergarten Readiness Program
Jump start your child's formal education with an incredible 6-week Kindergarten Readiness Program. Our award-winning teachers have designed this program specifically for children who have attended at least one year of preschool and will be attending Kindergarten in the Fall. This program is packed with activities that will prepare your child for upcoming Kindergarten assessments as well as plenty of summer learning fun. During each day, your child will focus on reading readiness, phonemic awareness, number sense, and will enjoy time on our PEAC Athletic Field. During the PEAC Kindergarten Readiness Course, your child will receive the tools needed to meet the first day of school ready and excited to learn. Classes are limited to only 15 students. Space is limited.
