Young 5 - Bridge to Kindergarten

Sunshine Elementary is proud to be 1 out of 10 schools in the district to be able to offer the Young 5 - Bridge to Kindergarten program. This program is designed for incoming Kindergartners who have a birthday that falls between May 1st and September 1st and who may need the gift of time before entering a traditional Kindergarten program. We are currently in our 2nd year of offering this unique program that readies your child for the demands of Kindergarten.

Young Five serves as a bridge to Kindergarten by providing students time and support to develop core academic and social skills under the care and guidance of professional educators. This program is year one of a two year Kindergarten program.
