Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions and to keep our staff and students safe, Kindergarten Enrichment program will follow a different schedule this academic year.  There are two sessions of two days each (Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday) coinciding with the AM and PM schedules of the Kindergarten program at Mary Kay McMillin Early Childhood Center.  There will be no afternoon Kindergarten Enrichment sessions.

Our Kindergarten Enrichment program offers a small group setting, allowing the teachers to consider student interests and learning styles through a variety of enriching activities.  Our interdisciplinary approach enhances the MKM kindergarten curriculum by engaging students in art, physical activity, music, science, language arts and math experiences.  Activities will include a mixture of academics (Math skills, Science, Phonemic Awareness & Reading skills, Children’s Literature), COOKING, art, & movement.
