What makes Kindergarten experiences unique at KIPP Texas?
Our primary elementary academic model is designed to ensure our Little KIPPsters develop a love of learning from the very start. We do this by creating a safe and joyful learning environment for each student. Students spend time daily engaging in Social-Emotional Learning starting in Kindergarten. Our teachers use programs and methods that are backed by research to ensure that we meet the academic needs of every student in literacy, math, science, and social studies. We also provide time for individualized learning support through small group instruction and blended learning. Additionally, our warm and friendly teachers ensure our students build knowledge by participating in enrichment courses throughout the day. These enrichment courses vary by campus and can include art, music, dance, technology, etc.
Are there before or after-school care programs available?
Some of our schools offer before and after-school programs. Please contact your child’s school directly to learn more.
How old does my child need to be to enter Kindergarten?
