Our Program is prepared in accordance with Illinois State Board of Education. Wonderland Kids Academy offers full and part-time kindergarten program. All meals are provided including breakfast, lunch, and two nutritious snacks. Our kindergarten program is designed to prepare our students for a smooth transition into elementary school. Because our small class size allows for a lot of individual attention, we are confident that your child will be able to master our course without difficulty. Kindergarten textbooks will include phonics, reading, and mathematics. Our teachers will constantly reinforce and teach both school skills and social skills that will be needed for elementary school. Monthly field trips as well as special musical and artistic performances are also included in our kindergarten program.
