The Bridge Between Preschool

and Kindergarten

Marymount’s personalized Junior Kindergarten program serves children who are ready and eager to learn in a creative and loving environment as they prepare for the Kindergarten curriculum. We believe in a childhood full of discovery. We nurture each child’s potential and provide a program that allows for a student centered, inquiry based approach to learning combined with an enriching academic foundation.

Junior Kindergarten is ideal for four year olds who would benefit from a richly engaging, caring learning environment within a larger school community. Junior Kindergartners participate with Lower School students in school wide performances, community days, and buddy activities. JK students have access to all Lower School specialists as they have art, music, PE, and media literacy once a week.

Our Junior Kindergarten program is a 5-day program. Our Core Program runs Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with individualized learning activities and a rest period. We can offer flexible days and hours if there is a need for your family.
