Mini Kindy Classes
There is more to success in kindergarten than learning ABCs and 123s! You want your child to enjoy meaningful relationships, be caring and compassionate, work hard and be responsible, and feel good about who they are. At Mini Minds, we know these are the most formative years in your child’s life and the skills and tools they learn now will serve them for the rest of their academic career and into adulthood.
Our Mini Kindy classes are designed to serve as a supplement to your child's current preschool by engaging the “whole child” and filling in the gaps between social, emotional and academic learning. Preparing your child for kindergarten is about teaching them how to foster relationships, problem solve and regulate their emotions. Our students learn kindergarten readiness skills from your local experts in education and brain science. Offer your child a head start on a lifelong love of learning and brain growth by signing up for Mini Kindy classes today!
