CLOSED – it’s full. Kindergarten, Here I Come!! @ Rockland Youth Community Commission Center
May 9 @ 1:30 pm – Jun 11 @ 2:45 pm

All children registering must be going to Kindergarten in the Fall 2019. The focus promotes kindergarten readiness skills.  The children will participate in circle time as we sing about the months of the year, go over the seasons and letter sounds, read a story, and so much more.    

*While CFCE is very open to having siblings at most of our activities, this particular activity is curriculum based and focuses on promoting kindergarten readiness skills. Parents are encouraged to engage in these practices with their “Kindergartner” while in the classroom.  It can be distracting if siblings are present.  While we would not exclude any family from bringing siblings, we encourage parents to seek alternate childcare for the younger siblings if  possible. We understand this may not be an option.  Our main focus is to provide your “Kindergartner” with the most environmentally rich, developmentally appropriate, pleasant and worthwhile experience we can.

CLOSED – it’s full. Kindergarten, Here I Come!! @ Rockland Youth Community Commission Center
Jun 11 @ 1:30 pm – Jul 14 @ 2:45 pm

All children registering must be going to Kindergarten in the Fall 2019. The focus promotes kindergarten readiness skills.  The children will participate in circle time as we sing about the months of the year, go over the seasons and letter sounds, read a story, and so much more.    

*While CFCE is very open to having siblings at most of our activities, this particular activity is curriculum based and focuses on promoting kindergarten readiness skills. Parents are encouraged to engage in these practices with their “Kindergartner” while in the classroom.  It can be distracting if siblings are present.  While we would not exclude any family from bringing siblings, we encourage parents to seek alternate childcare for the younger siblings if  possible. We understand this may not be an option.  Our main focus is to provide your “Kindergartner” with the most environmentally rich, developmentally appropriate, pleasant and worthwhile experience we can.
