Kindergarten Program

Just For Kids proudly offers half day pre-kinder/kinder sessions at several of our sites.  We accept children starting at age 5.  *New in the 2019-2020 school year, Amity Just For Kids will be accepting students who are 4-years-old. 

Young children utilize all five senses to explore their world—learning through play and deepening their relationships with their peers and their environment.  Just For Kids offers families a safe and vibrant learning environment for their kindergarten children.

Our kinder sessions offer low ratios (1 teacher: 12 students) that make it possible to individualize curriculum and support the unique needs of every student.

Children build on skills they are learning in their kindergarten classroom and practice vital social emotional skills so that they are “learning ready”.  Most of all, they have fun!  We currently offer kinder sessions at six locations and hope to add more next year!
