Kindergarten Readiness

Preparing for future success

Kindergarten Readiness is an afternoon program for children enrolled in the 4 year old program at Hollis Preschool. Students remain at school after the morning class (which ends at 11:30am), bring a packed lunch, and stay until 2:00pm.

This program helps students possess the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for success in kindergarten. The afternoon is filled with a balanced schedule of small and large group activities, time for active and quiet play, arts, crafts, music and outdoor play. Kindergarten Readiness augments the preschool experience, with focuses on literacy, logic and reasoning, mathematics, and social, emotional and physical development. This program also helps prepare the children for the longer day they will experience in full day kindergarten the next year.
