Welcome to Cal Elite Kids’ Educational Academy! We are excited to share our program with you. Cal Elite is licensed to serve children 2.5 – 6 years. We offer the following programs:
(1) Preschool – serves students 2.5 to 5 years. Part time and fill time options available.
(2) Transitional Kindergarten (TK) for students who turn 5 years old late September 1st of the school year and before December 2nd. TK is offered as a Flex program (part time) and as full time program.
(3) Kindergarten – for students who are 5 years old on or before September 1st of the school year. Kindergarten is offered as a full time program only.
Cal Elite’s Education Academy is exceptional and distinguished. Our program is led by highly qualified, credentialed teachers with relevant early education teaching experience. Our curriculum is progressive, rich, and engaging. We know that preschool children focus most intently for 10-15 minutes. For this reason, our preschool program operates on developmentally appropriate 20 minutes rotations that allow us to capitalize on our students’ shorter learning cycles. Our kindergartners are successful with slightly longer rotations designed to prepare them for 1st grade. Though the state of California allows 12 students in a class, we always thrived with a productive class size of 8-10 students and as few as 6 students in our younger classes. We know that high standards, excellent teachers, strong curriculum, appropriate rotations and small class sizes differentiate our program in important ways.
