Kindergarten Programs

Introduce your child to the exciting world of science with our new Kindergarten programs! Children will explore and experience science with fun hands-on activities. All children enrolled in the Kindergarten programs must be entering Kindergarten in Fall 2014. Children must be comfortable with a classroom environment and be able to stay without a parent or guardian for the 2 hour class.
