Starting Feb. 14, 2017, Huntington Beach City School District will provide an Extended-Kindergarten Program. The curriculum and related learning activities are designed for children who were too young to attend the start of the regular kindergarten program last September but who will be five years old by February 14, 2017. Hands-on, learning-by-doing activities are provided in a rich, stimulating environment.
The curriculum is based on the needs and abilities of students rather than chronological age alone. Activities are planned to develop children’s self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning. This nurturing, yet challenging program gives children specific instruction in thinking skills that are foundational to learning academic content.
The program will be held at Perry School located at 19231 Harding Lane, Huntington Beach, CA. The length of the school day at Perry School is 8:05-1:25 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday) and 8:05-11:50 (Thursday). Parents must provide transportation.
The West County Family YMCA offers licensed, fee-based childcare programs throughout the district. Parents may call 714.847.9622 if more information is desired.
Registration forms will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and will be available at the HBCSD District Office located at 17011 Beach Blvd., Suite 560 beginning on December 5, 2016 at 8:30am. Parents will be required to provide proof of child’s age, up-to-date immunizations, health exam, and residency when they return their completed forms to Perry School ONLY.
