GYPSD Junior Kindergarten Program Information

Online registration for Junior Kindergarten is now open!

Niton Central School is pleased to offer our Junior Kindergarten Program for its second year. We have loved having these students be a part of our school community and look forward to continuing that in the years to come. 

We have recently transformed two of our classrooms into an exciting, enriching and
explorative environment in our school where our Junior Kindergarten students and Kindergarten students will learn collaboratively throughout the year. This space will provide the opportunity for combined learning and play based activities but also provide the flexibility for each class to have their own space to focus on their specific learning goals. Our Junior Kindergarten students will be run by a certified teacher with support from a child care aid that will use our newly created space to further advance your child's skills. We look forward to sharing pictures as the transformation progresses and are very excited for everyone to see it in September!

For more information, please read through our Junior Kindergarten Parent Information Booklet.
