Ready, Set, Go Kindergarten - *wait list*

This course prepares students for the academic areas and inquiry-based approach they will encounter in LJA Kindergarten in the fall. Through art, cooking, and hands-on learning experiences, students will explore authors who have captured the imaginations of young children around the globe and here at home in Hawai`i. Students will also participate in experiential learning engagements both in and out of the classroom, focusing on phonics, developmentally appropriate reading and writing readiness activities, and math concepts like patterns and number sense. Through field trips, free play, and exploration, students will build the social skills needed to excel in Kindergarten while having fun on the "new" campus. Note: Le Jardin Academy’s current and entering students have priority. Non-LJA students will need to complete a reference and/or observation/interview. The Summer School office will contact you to set up an appointment.
