Explore Kindergarten Options During Open House Events

Tuesday , January 21 , 2020

Starting kindergarten is an important milestone for your child. For some children, this will be their first experience in a school setting, while others may have attended a pre-kindergarten program. If your child is turning 5 years old before September 1st, you’ll want to learn more about elementary school options in PVSchools at one (or more) of our Kindergarten Open House events. 

Kindergarten is a crucial time in the development process for your child to discover, learn, and grow. That's why at PVSchools offers free, full-day kindergarten at all our elementary schools.

The Kindergarten Open Houses allow you to visit our schools* and talk to the teachers who will be guiding your child through the educational journey.

Join us at one (or more) of our Kindergarten Open Houses
