Young Fives Program

  •  
    Thank you for your interest in Young Fives. 
     
    The District will once again offer Young Fives during the 2020-21 school year!!!   Information coming soon! 
     
    The Young Fives program offers an alternative for children whose parents feel that they are not yet ready for a traditional kindergarten experience.  The program is free for younger five-year-old children who live in the Grosse Pointe Public School System attendance area. Eligibility is determined by birth date -- children must turn five between March 1 and December 1, 2020. Students who complete the Young Fives program would be expected to return to their home school the following year. The natural progression from the Young Fives program would be to Kindergarten.
     
    Communication regarding Young Fives offerings will be available by the end of December. Here is the current Young Fives FAQ (updated 11/12/19).
     
    Young Fives/Kindergarten Information Night takes place on January 9, 2020 from 6:30pm-8pm at your 2020-21 neighborhood school.
     
    Please contact Keith Howell if you have any questions.
