Babbling Brook Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten is an opportunity to bridge the social-emotional and academic needs for young students to move from Nursery School to Kindergarten happily and successfully.  The small class size (maximum of 6 students) gives ample opportunity to give individualized attention and to foster a love of learning.  Four and five year old children that have had one year of Pre-K or have not completed Pre-K are welcome.  

The program is taught by a dual certified NYS elementary general and special education teacher.  The curriculum is project based learning with a focus on phonics, reading and math. Integrated lessons in science, civics, social and environmental studies make learning engaging and fun! 

The program takes place in a dedicated teaching space within a home in Rye Brook with ample indoor and outdoor space for learning and play.
