The Friendship Kinderbridge Academy is a summer bridge program for current Pre-K4 students that is designed to help with the transition to kindergarten. The camp focuses on visual arts and through the support of their teachers and parents/caregivers, children will explore, sing, dance, create and play to reach developmental milestones and gain school readiness skills.
This summer we will ensure smaller class sizes in KinderBridge Academy, no more than 10 students per class, which will provide more one-on-one interactions (crucial during early academic years) and parent feedback.
KinderBridge Academy is free for current Friendship Pre-K4 students, but there are limited slots available.
Locations: All KinderBridge Academies will be conducted online in order to maintain the health and safety of all of our staff and students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
10:00 am – 12:00 pm or 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
