Our Kindergarten Vision is that each kindergarten graduate is prepared with a foundation of social, emotional, physical, and academic skills to become a productive learner, an effective communicator, and a responsible student. The education of your child is a collaborative effort between parent and A.J. Winters Elementary.  According to Idaho state law, a child must be 5 years old on or before September 1st to be eligible for Kindergarten.

In order to prepare your child for their 1st day of school check out some of our programs that we offer.

How do my child & I get started?

Well, It's easy as

A..B..C..     1..2..3..

1. Go to our local library!

2. Check out any "skill check" kit & have fun learning!

3. Return the kit back to the library when done to receive your 1st stamp on your "passport!"

***Each kit includes different materials depending on the skill to be worked on (visual and spacial relations, rhyming, counting, letter and number recognition, shape and color recognition, etc.).



How to get started:

You can sign up at any time. 

Be sure to stop by the public library to pick up your first reading log and a folder to store all your reading adventures.



1.  Have fun!  Reading together should never be a chore.
2.  If you read one story at bedtime each night for three years you’ll have shared 1,095 books.
3.  If you read ten books a week for two years, you’ll have shared 1,040 books.
4. Any child from birth to kindergarten is eligible to participate.
5.  Although we want to encourage you to visit the library, books do not have to all come from the library.  Also read what you have at home.
6.  All books count.  Listen to a book at storytime....it counts.  Enjoy a Tumblebook on the computer...it counts.  Siblings read to your child....it counts.  The same book for the 20th time...it counts.  Read to more than one child...it counts for everyone.
7.  Visit storytime often.   Thursday at 10:30 for infants and toddlers, and at 11:00 am for preschoolers.
8. REMEMBER, It’s not a RACE, it’s a journey.  Enjoy the process
