Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum

Getting ready for kindergarten is a process that starts long before kindergarten begins.  

At All About Kids, teachers in our pre-kindergarten classroom make every effort to ensure your child has the skills needed to confidently enter kindergarten.  We even have homework!  We make sure that all children entering kindergarten classes are academically, socially, emotionally and physically ready for school.
