Kindergarten Preview

Kindergarten is an exciting time of transition that is full of new beginnings. It is also your first introduction to your child’s primary schooling in Christian education. At Berean Academy, we will equip you with the information you need to consider sending your child here. We invite you to join us on Friday, February 16 at 8:30 in the morning, to learn more about our Kindergarten program and what Berean has to offer.

Kindergarten Preview will give you information about our program and help you make an informed decision regarding your child’s readiness for school. Our friendly admissions staff will be on-hand to greet you and provide you with helpful information to take home. Our experienced administration team will conduct a brief presentation and will answer any questions that you may have. With all your questions answered, you will have the opportunity to go with our Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Kristen Burkhart, and experience an interactive lesson with your child.

Kindergarten Preview is an excellent way to gain more information about our program and for your child to engage in a hands-on classroom lesson. Once you have experienced the classroom, you will enjoy a small reception prepared with you and your child in mind.

To determine if your child is ready for Kindergarten, please expand the list using the arrow below.
