What are Kindergarten Enrichment's hours? 
It depends on the hours at the school. Kindergarten Enrichment and Kindergarten combine to make a full day of school, with start and end times matching the school’s start and end times. 
When is Kindergarten Enrichment in session?
Kindergarten Enrichment follows the district’s regular Kindergarten schedule. We are only open on the days when children attend their Kindergarten class.
What time is lunch?
Daily schedules are set at the building level. You can check the website at your child's school or talk to staff at the school to learn about the schedule of your child's day. Kindergarten is approximately 3 hours. Children eat lunch and have recess with their Kindergarten Enrichment class. Kindergarten Enrichment classes are supervised by adult staff members.
How will my child get from Kindergarten Enrichment to Kindergarten or Kindergarten to Kindergarten Enrichment?
Each school has a plan for getting children from one program to the other. Adults will always supervise the children to ensure safety.
How will my child get to the afterschool program?

Will my child be in a.m. or p.m. Kindergarten Enrichment?
Kindergarten placement decisions are made by the school. Children are placed into Kindergarten Enrichment classes that run opposite of their Kindergarten class. The Kindergarten Enrichment office plays no role in the actual placement decisions.

Do I have to send my child to Kindergarten Enrichment every day or are there part-time options?  
Full time Kindergarten Enrichment (5 days) is available at all school. Most schools also have a 2 and 3 day part time option.

No. Kindergarten Enrichment does not offer drop-in care.
KE2webphotos.10.jpgIf my child is in a full-time only program, what happens if I keep her home one or two days each week?
Please talk with your child’s Kindergarten Enrichment Specialist. Full-time Kindergarten Enrichment classes are planned differently than part-time classes. Day-to-day activities build on prior experiences earlier in the week. By skipping days, your child may miss experiences that provide continuity to the program. In any case, you will be expected to pay for a full-time spot.
What if our family switches schools? Can my child continue in Kindergarten Enrichment?
It depends on the space availability at the new school.  In some cases, Kindergarten Enrichment classrooms are at capacity and there would not be space for another child. Please let the Kindergarten Enrichment office know of your plans to move. It is best if we have three weeks’ notice.
