St. Raymond starts 'junior kindergarten'

St. Raymond, the private Catholic K-8 school in Menlo Park, will start a morning "junior kindergarten" class this fall, intended to serve as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten, said school spokesperson Kim McNair..

The class is meant to help children interact with their peers and adults, and aid them with physical and motor development, Ms. McNair said. The curriculum is focused on getting children ready for the next step in their schooling: learning how to read and solve math problems.

After-school care is available from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., she said. Children can enroll in the fall of 2011 if they turn 5 by Jan. 31, 2012. Applications for the junior kindergarten are due March 15. Applications for regular kindergarten are due Feb 7.
