Strong Beginnings Program
Strong Beginnings is a Kindergarten preparatory program (for children age four beginning Kindergarten in the next school year) that focuses mainly on Academics. Not only will your child be assessing subjects such as Math, Language, Literacy, Science, Technology, Social Studies and Physical Development/Health, but they will also practice Classroom Etiquette and school readiness. Routines and positive learning habits are essential for their development in a classroom setting.
The program meets Monday-Friday. The program does not meet on U.S. holidays or when DoDDs schools are not in session.
