Pre-Kindergarten Program


Our Pre-Kindergarten Program (Kangaroo Room) is made up of students attending kindergarten the following fall. Depending on your child’s birthday, he/she may move into this class in September or January.


We spend the year working on skills and concept development in preparation for Hilliard City Schools’ kindergarten expectations as well as the goals of the Early Learning Development Standards. We participate in a wide range of enriching experiences, incorporating art, sensory, manipulative, mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, literacy, gross motor, and dramatic play into our day. It is our ultimate goal to prepare each child in the kangaroo class for a successful kindergarten experience!
