Kyrene provides several different opportunities for preschool-age children to ensure their success in school and meet individual needs. All of these options incorporate age-appropriate activities that help children reach their full potential cognitively, socially, physically and emotionally.
Kindergarten and Early Entrance
For children 5 years old
For admission to kindergarten, we recommend that children befive years old before September 1 of the current school year. We offer a Kindergarten early entrance age exception for children who turn five between September 1 and December 31 (if it is in their best interest.)
For children 3 to 5 years, not yet in Kindergarten
Kyrene Preschool Program is an awesome first learning experience for all preschool-aged students. Children who are typically developing and those with disabilities, learn together in a small group setting. Typically developing children pay a monthly tuition fee to attend the Kyrene Preschool program.
Classes sizes are kept small and are instructed by a certified teacher, a speech/language pathologist, and teaching assistants. Classes are three hours, in either a morning or afternoon session, with a 4-day a week schedule.
This multi-age classroom emphasizes learning through all five senses and allows children to learn at their own pace under the direction of a Montessori trained teacher. The program is five days per week and offers a full and a half-day option.
