Kindergarten & Kindergarten Plus

All neighborhood schools accept registration forms for kindergarten students. Parents are encouraged to attend kindergarten orientation sessions held in the spring prior to the child entering school in the fall. For more information on kindergarten registration and orientation, please contact individual schools.

Kindergarten

 

Kindergarten in the Capistrano Unified School District lasts approximately three and a half hours. The flow of a typical kindergarten day varies among schools. Students generally start the day with a literacy block where they work in large and small groups on reading and writing skills. During this time, they also learn to tell stories together and, later in the year, they may write in a daily journal. Students often take turns working on a computer. Art and music/movement programs are built in throughout the day.

 

Kindergarten Plus

 

The Kindergarten Plus program is a fee-based partnership between Capistrano Unified and the YMCA to offer a full-day kindergarten program. It is designed to meet the needs of working parents, provide additional instructional time for kindergarten students and allow more time for teachers to implement the kindergarten standards.

 

Kindergarten Plus teachers conduct enrichment activities that build upon the District’s kindergarten curriculum standards. The program components are: language arts/literacy, mathematics/manipulative activities, science/technology, arts and humanities, construction/problem solving, character development, and health/wellness/fitness.

 

The Kindergarten Plus program is offered at numerous elementary schools. Please contact your school principal about your child’s school, or contact your local YMCA branch.
