The High 5 program prepares each child for the critical transition from preschool to kindergarten. The program assures that each child will be ready for the academic and social challenges of the kindergarten classroom. Our weekly structured curriculum focuses on developing, sharpening and reinforcing art, science, math, writing, reading and social skills. Our teachers help to strengthen each child’s decision making and self-help skills in a safe supportive classroom environment.
