Kindergarten at the ELC provides a curriculum rich in diversity with an emphasis on STEAM and Literacy. Kindergartners participate in a structured gym class weekly as well as attend a storytime in the library that gives them the opportunity to check out books. We enjoy a 1:1 ratio with technology and each teacher has a classroom aide.
Children who are 5 years old by August 1 qualify to begin kindergarten that school year.
All kindergarteners in the SCOH's district attend full day kindergarten at the ELC.
Kindergarten Registration is ONLINE.
Kindergarten Kickoff for the 2024-25 year is Monday, April 8th from 6:00-7:15PM at the ELC.
Kindergarten Registration for 2024-25 will begin online on April 8, 2024.
