Transitional kindergarten comes to NMS in Fall 2021

For the student who needs an extra year of schooling before starting kindergarten, New Morning School will initiate an innovative, specialized new program – Transitional Kindergarten – for the 2021-22 school year.

This half-day program will meet weekdays from 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

For children who could use an extra year of learning, or who did not attend preschool due to the pandemic, this can be just the year needed to enhance social skills and stimulate readiness skills. It will focus on SEL (social and emotional learning) and academic skills. It will be a mix of movement, play and readiness skills geared to the level of the child.

Transitional kindergarten will be limited to six students due to social distancing, growing to 10 students as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. The small class size fosters personalized attention from the teacher and teacher assistant.

New Morning School has a track record of keeping children safe and in-person over the past year. Safety protocols are followed by all staff and parents.

Contact Joan Barrett, admissions director, to determine if this program is the right fit for your child. Call the school at 734-420-3331
