All about Young 5's -
Early learning is a key component to the success of each and every child - the earlier we can provide solid educational opportunities to our younger learners the better. With that being said we are very proud to announce that the Young 5's program at New Haven Elementary will continue with an all day program in 2017-18. In addition, we have added a Young 5's room at Endeavour Elementary. These programs will allow our youngest learners the time they need to grow academically, socially, and emotionally in order to be prepared for Kindergarten. Expanding the day gives us the opportunity to provide each child additional opportunities for learning and growth in a manner consistent with early childhood development.
New Haven "Young 5's", located at New Haven and Endeavour Elementary Schools, are designed for
students who are eligible for kindergarten (or just missed eligibility
due to new state age requirements). This program will run Monday through Friday on the regular elementary school hours. It will include a lunch period. The program follows the kindergarten curriculum but takes the time necessary to
ensure students understand the concepts. When students leave this
program they would enter full-day kindergarten, not first grade. This is a free program with free busing included for resident students.
If you reside out-of-district, please apply through Schools of Choice though transportation is not provided for Schools of Choice applicants.
