    Kinder Prep

    Children learn through experience and discovery. Our goal in the J.O. Combs Kinder Prep program is to prepare children to enter kindergarten with a healthy self-concept and a positive attitude toward school and learning. Children who will turn four by December 31 of that school year are eligible for this class. The Kindergarten Prep program is exciting and unique in many ways. Your child will learn in a positive, child-oriented program with a hands-on active approach toward learning. Kinder Prep is taught by a certified teacher.
