Is your child turning 4 by 8/31/24, and heading to kindergarten next year? This is the program for you! We strive to help every child become proficient in skills needed for school. Input from Elco kindergarten teachers has helped form our objectives, and the 3-day format provides time to grow and discover. Puppets, songs, and games make discoveries fun!
While we generally follow Elco's school calendar, students enroll from all over Lebanon & Berks counties. Ten total tuition payments are required, the first of which is due with registration.

TO REGISTER: Contact Mrs. Wenger. New families are required to participate in a brief, 15-minute phone interview. This helps determine if the program is a good fit for the child in question. A classroom visit is not mandatory, but can be scheduled at the parent's request. Learn more here.
With the registration form, a fee of one month's tuition ($150) is required.
AFTER JULY 1: Students who register this late risk not having paperwork processed in time to attend the first week of school unless a rush fee is paid.
*Behavior Disclaimer: we cannot serve students with special emotional, physical or behavioral needs. This includes children who ignore parents' directions, refuse to obey them, throw tantrums, speak disrespectfully to adults or harm other children. We are not a public school program and are not required to admit such students. Out of respect for the remaining children, students who enroll and exhibit this type of behavior are typically removed within the first week. Our priority is to maintain a safe space for teachable children!
