Begin the Elementary Exploration!

At Club Kinder, your student will learn and develop life skills and be given every opportunity to succeed at school. The convenient onsite location and flexible schedule that welcomes both morning and afternoon TK/K students, extends Kindergarten to a full-day exploration!

Your child will gain socialization skills with peers, while remaining socially distanced through a variety of structured activities both inside and outside.

In addition, it is the only kindergarten program in Carlsbad that gives 100% of its proceeds back to the Carlsbad Unified School District for K-12 programs in music, STEAM, and educational innovation. Your student will benefit for years to come!

Every student is given attention and opportunity to have a safe, fun, and inspiring experience. Parents are encouraged to collaborate about progress along the way. In addition, staff members participate in ongoing training in curriculum, student behavior and First Aid/CPR. 

Safety and Social Distancing

Everyone on campus must is required to wear a facial mask (except when eating). Children are practicing social distancing, staff are encouraging children to wash hands throughout the day, heightened cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day, classrooms set up for children to be 6 feet apart.
