for parents considering Gordon whose children have summer birthdays
Students who turn five during the late spring and summer months are often among the youngest students in a Kindergarten cohort. Gordon’s Young Kindergarten is a child-centered niche program for students graduating from preschool who would benefit from additional pre-academic skill building and social emotional growth before entering Kindergarten. The Young Kindergarten classroom recognizes the difference that four to six months can have on a child’s identity development and school readiness as significant. Young Kindergarten offers these children a classroom space with age-appropriate curriculum that responds to their unique developmental needs. This Open House is designed to explore the critical opportunity that exists between Preschool and Kindergarten for Gordon's youngest school-aged five year olds.
