Begindergarten is a 4 and 5 year old program focused on kindergarten readiness skills.  The purpose of the program is to aid in preparing preschoolers for WOLCA’s advanced Kindergarten literacy curriculum. It is our goal that before students enter Kindergarten, they are equipped with all the tools needed in order to become successful readers. Through this program we are also able to identify and provide early intervention for students begin 1who may inevitably have difficulties with reading in the future. Students will be learning: Letter Recognition, Phonetic letter sounds, Word Families, and Sight words.  Math, Social Studies and Science lessons are all incorporated into the literacy program through hands on creative play and are taught in a fun learning environment.

Begindergarten Full Day Program-In addition to the kindergarten readiness skills taught, all full day Begindergarten students participate in additional enhancement courses including Music class, Spanish class, Art class, and Physical Education.
