For Parents

Welcome, Parents!

We’re excited to introduce your child to languages and global cultures in our safe, nurturing learning environment. Kinder Prep is designed to help your three- or four-year-old become familiar with the types of classroom expectations he or she will likely encounter in kindergarten. And it’s fun, too!

Please read the Parent Handbook (coming soon) for important details about our program. We appreciate your cooperation and your trust in us.
