We are excited to let you know more about PPSEL's All Day K Program, an application for which can be found online here:
All Day K SY14 Application
The State of Idaho only funds a half-day Kindergarten program, but a great deal of research, and our own experiences, teach us that participation in ALL DAY K programs greatly benefit students and help them be well prepared for the later primary grades, both academically as well as socially.
Our program offers eligible students:
* A small class size with personalized attention from an experienced Kindergarten teacher.
* Participation in enrichment activities that include health and fitness, music or art.
* 40-50% more time for instruction and for positive social interaction than children experience in a half- day program.
* An increased opportunity for our teachers to know each student and to tailor the learning environment to meet each student’s needs.
The All Day K program is a balance of small group, large group, and individual activities that engage children in intellectually stimulating activities while increasing each child's opportunity to learn the core curriculum.
