Enhancing the Kindergarten experience!
Our K-Wrap program provides students attending New Albany Schools half-day kindergarten with wrap-around care to enhance their learning and development. Students enrolled in morning or afternoon kindergarten in New Albany Schools are eligible for this program.
K-Wrap is available 7:00am-6:00pm, so students can have traditional before and after school care, as well as a full half-day of kindergarten enhancement. Our staff walk students to and from the New Albany kindergarten building located next door to RSG. K-Wrap students also are eligible to receive a full day of care on scheduled school days off, scheduled breaks, and calamity days.
During the half-day kindergarten enhancement, students join the RSG full-day private kindergarten group, participating in the same curriculum activities. They have additional work with reading, writing, math, science, art, and social skills development.
Our private kindergarten teacher does not track progress toward specific learning goals for K-Wrap students since their New Albany kindergarten teacher has that responsibility. However, students will participate in curriculum developed to ensure they reach kindergarten learning goals.
