Early Kindergarten Transition Program (EKT)

Help your child transition to kindergarten by enrolling them in our two week summer program! The Early Kindergarten Transition Program gives children the chance to meet teachers, make new friends and prepare for starting school in the fall.

Two sessions are available. Each one is two weeks long (Monday-Thursday only).

The registration window is closing soon! Register before school offices close in late June. To sign up, contact your home elementary school. Look up school contact information here. All EKT attendees need to register with the school they will attend kindergarten at in the fall.
