aboutKRC

Created by Ready for School and delivered by teachers, our Kindergarten Readiness Camp combines the routines of a typical school day with outdoor exploration to build the academic and social-emotional skills that kindergarten teachers want to see in their students.

Beyond the four weeks of camp, families will be provided with engaging home learning kits and invited to in-person events throughout the summer! Kindergarten teachers tell us: When a child is curious, asks questions, is able to wait their turn, and is comfortable in the classroom environment, it helps with being ready to learn.

This summer your family can register for one of two different learning paths. Either your child can enjoy the full four weeks of camp with teacher-led instruction, the home learning kits, and evening family experiences OR your family can simply receive our home learning kit and participate in our evening gatherings with other incoming kindergarten families. 

Your child will reach kindergarten more confident, INSPIRED, and ready.

Realizing the importance of first impressions, I am dedicated to equipping young learners to thrive in their initial kindergarten experience and beyond. Each child has been entrusted with unique talents and challenges. It is my personal passion to activate student enthusiasm and remove barriers that could inhibit them from reaching their full potential.-Jessica Burkman
