Welcome to Wrap Around Kindergarten
Wrap Around Kindergarten
Wrap Around Kindergarten offers your child a curriculum based enrichment program that keeps pace with and compliments the kindergarten program offered within their school. Wrap Instructors regularly meet with the school’s kindergarten staff to continually support the standard kindergarten curriculum in both methodology and philosophy. We are fortunate that although we did not require our lead instructors to be certified teachers, our search has attracted resumes from highly qualified, certified teachers very eager to take on the opportunity of working with our kindergarten children. Your child will have not only the ability to begin their elementary education in Ramsey’s fine school district, but the opportunity to enjoy the continuity of their school day without interruption and need for adjustment to another facility.
What exactly is "Wrap"?
- Wrap is an optional before or after kindergarten enrichment program; it has a defined curriculum with centers designed to complement kindergarten experience, not duplicate it.
- Wrap is held in a kindergarten classroom located in your child’s school.
- AM or PM session - if your child is assigned an AM kindergarten class then they will have a PM Wrap class; vice versa for PM. Your child’s AM/PM placement is determined by your school’s principal, not by RCS.
- There is a 5 day or 3 day (Tues/Wed/Thurs) option.
- One instructor plus one adult aide per class (low student/teacher ratio.)
- Both the AM and the PM Wrap students will have lunch/recess time. Children must bring a bagged lunch and drink – purchasing lunch is not an option.
- Wrap follows the RSD’s kindergarten schedule and hours of operation (including minimum days, early dismissals, inclement weather early dismissal and delayed openings.) Check the district website page for detailed schedule information.
- Your child must be registered in RSD kindergarten to enroll.
- Wrap’s Orientation Day is held the day before the first day of school in September to meet the Wrap staff and see their classroom. We want your child, and you, to have a high comfort level the first of day school!
