Kindergarten Enrichment

BPS101 hosts an in-house kindergarten Enrichment program that coordinates with the District’s Half-Day Kindergarten Program (HDK). Kindergarten Enrichment students engage in work and play in line with the themes and skills developed in the HDK program. These skills are an extension of the core program, with an emphasis on play and exploration. Click HERE for additional information on the Kindergarten Enrichment Program.

Early Entrance to Kindergarten

The District has procedures in place to screen students who parents believe are candidates for early entrance to kindergarten. Board policies 6:130 and 6:135 detail these policies and procedures. All requests for screening should be made by April 1st, prior to the year the parent would like the student to start school. A fee of $50 is required, but fee exemptions are available.
