Junior Kindergarten

Junior Kindergarten at Byron Center Christian is a stepping stone to elementary education. This program strives to foster confidence, independent initiative for learning, self-discipline, consideration for others, accountability for one's own actions and intellectual growth. By nurturing these qualities, a positive self-image is developed in each child. With hands-on activities, the students learn by having fun. With low student ratios, children are given every opportunity for success. Research supports that early successes are a strong component in a child's development and growth now and in the future.

In Junior Kindergarten we are ALWAYS learning! Our goal is to intensively foster developmental readiness for Kindergarten. By the end of Junior Kindergarten we want each child to be proficient and confident in their ability to “do school.” This means that any and every activity is a learning time for your child.
