Ready for Kindergarten!

Kindergarten Club LogoWe want to make the most of your child’s first educational experiences. Our Ascend Curriculum helps children progressively build valuable skill sets in subjects like Literacy, Mathematics, Science & Sensory, Physical Fitness, and Creative Expression every month. These learning experiences start in our Infant and Toddler classrooms, progress through our preschool programs, and are later fine-tuned just before kindergarten in Kindergarten Club!

We work closely with the Ankeny Community School District’s kindergarten program. Understanding the local school district’s kindergarten readiness expectations helps us in ensuring that your child is ready for the transition to elementary school.
