Developed in response to the closing of Sonrise Academy, this program strives to prepare each student for kindergarten success! It incorporates a variety of group and individual activities with a focus on reading readiness, number sense, social skills awareness, and fine motor skills practice. With a maximum of 12 students, the pre-k program runs from September-May for a total of 68 class days.
Students attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00-11:30am. Our school day includes free play, Circle Time, gym, snack, small groups, art, music, and Bible Time. While this class is not licensed, its academic objectives have been evaluated for input by the kindergarten teachers at Jackson Elementary in the ELCO school district.
To learn more about the program, please see the overview for next school year and our sample progress report.
PLEASE NOTE: The registration deadline has been extended to August 1, 2020.

"My son attended the Pre-K Kangaroo program and absolutely loved it. He grew so much socially and academically just within the few months of starting. Mrs. Wenger and her assistants have done a wonderful job and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is getting ready to send their littles off to kindergarten! Excellent hours, extremely reasonable price and lots of one-on-one attention!"
Krista, Pre-K Parent
"Mrs. Wenger's programs have been the perfect fit for our children. I couldn't be happier with the classes. There is a great mixture of free play, instruction, crafts, music, and movement, all within a structured class that allows kids to thrive and have social interaction with their peers. Mrs. Wenger goes above and beyond with her preparation and time that she puts into each class. Her organization and communication with parents is impeccable. And the programs are reasonably priced, too! I would recommend Maple Avenue Music to any parent looking for pre-school instruction or music lessons."
