opportunities for families and students as time allows.

Please check the COVID-19 Resource Center for the latest information.

Kinder Kickstart

The goal of Mat-Su Kinder Kick-Start is to help children prepare socially, emotionally, and academically for kindergarten.  Children will develop both fine and gross motor skills through a variety of activities while fostering self-control, the ability to follow simple directions and a beginning understanding of personal responsibility, group, and individual cooperation.  KinderKick-Start will encourage letter recognition, letter sounds, beginning phonics, number sense, rhymes, process and instructional art, early science, and social studies.   Much of the discovery will be through creative hands-on activities, music, rhymes, and play-based learning.   

Are you interested in having your little one join Kinder Kick-Start?
Complete this interest form between March 1 and April 15.  We will contact families the end of April about enrollment.

Note: This program prioritizes students that turn four years old before September 1st of 2024. If your child is five, we would love to visit with you about homeschooling for kindergarten!
