Transitional Kindergarten

Buehler is now offering a transitional kindergarten program.  This program is for children who miss the district cut off age for kindergarten or are not quite ready for kindergarten.  Children must be 5 years old by October 31, 2017.  Those children whose birthdays fall after Sept. 1 will be evaluated to determine if transitional kindergarten will fit their developmental needs.  We offer a half day (9-12) option, a full day (9-4) option or full day with before and after care.  For more information and pricing contact Jenn Stricker at 847.410.5230 or jstricker@ymcachicago.org.
