Junior Kindergarten - The Gift of Time

HVS is once again offering Junior Kindergarten. This program is designed for students who would benefit from a two-year kindergarten experience. 

  • The Junior Kindergarten curriculum will have a more play-based, learn by doing approach. 
  • Junior Kindergarten students will receive art, music and physical education classes. 

The flow chart below will be helpful in deciding the best placement for your child:

Junior Kindergarten information will be shared with different stakeholders in multiple venues in the next few months. Interested families can fill out the Google form below. 

HVS currently runs seven sections of Junior Kindergarten. Country Oaks Elementary, Oxbow Elementary and Virtual Academy hosts two sections, while Spring Mills host one section. Transportation is provided to students living within the program location attendance boundaries. 

Age Requirement for the 2021-22 School Year:

In order to be eligible for Junior Kindergarten, students must either be 5 years old by on or before Sept.1 or be eligible for an early entry option which requires a parent-signed waiver (see below) and a birthday between Sept. 2 and on or before Dec. 1. This five day a week program is at no cost to families. Consequently, the target audience is students who qualify for a waiver or those who would benefit from the gift of time.  Students who need to enhance their social, self-monitoring, fine motor, and academic skills or had a limited preschool experience could also be a good match for the program.
