Preschool or Kindergarten?

At Normandale Preschool we know how difficult it is to make the kindergarten decision when a birthday comes in the Spring or Summer. Of course, we also have those students who just miss the deadline and have Fall birthdays. If you find yourself in a position of not knowing what to do...we have the class for you.

Mrs. Wroge has taught our five year old Kindergarten Readiness Class since 1999. This class is unusual in that it is only open to students who are five or will turn five in the Fall of the year. Many of the students could go to kindergarten, but instead, for various reasons, have chosen another year of preschool. Mrs. Wroge prepares her older students for the challenges of kindergarten by giving them the literacy and math skills they need to be successful in school. Each of our four and five year old classes prepare our students for kindergarten, but this class is different because the students are all older which allows Mrs. Wroge to move more quickly and expand on the curriculum.

If you or a friend are interested in our Five's Kindergarten Readiness Class, we currently have openings for Fall. This is a unique experience offered by few schools. Tell your friends that Normandale Preschool is the answer to their kindergarten dilemma. They can register for our Five's Kindergarten Readiness Class knowing that they will be ready for school in the coming year.

Normandale Preschool is here for you and your children age 33 months through age 5. We have the class and extended day options for you.
