What Happens Next?

We’re likely not the first to tell you that “kindergarten isn’t what it used to be.” Children are increasingly expected to enter primary school with literacy and numeracy skills — and the ability to handle myriad social challenges. And our parents report that the highly individualized, hands-on education provided at Kent Place has prepared their boys and girls to be good listeners, eager learners and confident leaders.

Our Preschool girls are welcome to enter our Kindergarten program — and begin an all-girls’ education at Kent Place School — without reapplying. The boys in our Pre-Kindergarten class are supported with placement counseling throughout the kindergarten admission process to help families find the best fit for the child.

Kent Place Offers, Hands Down, the Best Preparation Possible for Kindergarten.

That’s what I would tell the parent of any preschool student — boy or girl. Of course, it’s terrific there’s a great playground to run around and play superheroes, and buckets of Magna-tiles, but something really special happens in the classroom. School was always something my son looked forward to — and I think that’s because he was guided by his teachers in such a positive way.
