e-Connections Post John D. Sloat Tahoe

Space is still available in the Early Kinder programs at John Sloat and Tahoe elementary schools.

Early Kinder is a unique program for students who will turn 5 years of age between September 2 and December 2. The program is designed to give these children an extra year of learning before they start traditional kindergarten.

“We consider Early Kinder a gift of time,” says John Conway, coordinator of the Early Kinder programs. “Kindergarten can be challenging for students who are not truly prepared for the rigors and routines.”

The John Sloat and Tahoe Early Kinder programs are open to eligible students who live in the district. Learn more at an Early Kinder information meeting scheduled for 1 p.m. on Wednesday, August 24, at John Sloat, 7525 Candlewood Way, Sacramento.

The meeting will provide Early Kinder program  information and possible enrollment opportunities for district families.

Enrollment packets are available at the schools. Space is limited to 24 students at each campus. For more information and to download the Early Kinder Enrollment packet, visit
