Pre-Kindergarten classes at Tiger Academy include the 3-hour state-provided Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten session at no cost to our parents, with additional developmental and academic activities available for the remainder of the day for a fee, which may be covered in several ways based on each family’s needs. Our full Pre-K school day is from 8:00am until 3:30pm, however, those times may be adjusted based on each child’s need(s). The goal of Pre-K is to prepare children to enter Kindergarten well-prepared, ready to learn and achieve their highest potential.
