EHJ is a big believer in the importance of the school district’s Kindergarten Boot Camp; it helps kids feel confident about attending kindergarten. The boot camp, hosted at Sunnyside Elementary, was held in August and 91 kids attended, as compared to 60 students last year. We learned from parent surveys afterward that
- 96% of parents stated that the boot camp made starting kindergarten easier for their children
- Before boot camp, 38% of the kids felt confident to start kindergarten but after boot camp, 98% of the kids felt ready to start kindergarten.
