Overview

Welcome to our week-long, full-day Kindergarten program that is perfectly structured to meet the needs of working families. With extended care options and an early college prep curriculum, we feel your child will be better prepared to face the challenges of our changing world.  
 
The Kindergarten program at Madison Christian School is best suited to developmentally mature students, yet takes into consideration the warmth and care needed by beginning Kindergartners starting their school experience. We move through typical Kindergarten tasks while beginning reading and writing during the first semester. By the end of the school year, Kindergarten students should have a strong foundation and enthusiasm for future learning.
