Folsom Parks & Recreation’s Kindergarten Readiness program introduces children to the joy of learning in the unique setting of the Hinkle Creek Nature Center. The curriculum is focused on preparing students for grade school with social and academic skills, including language development, emergent reading, math, and incorporated gross and fine motor skills . The class at Hinkle Creek has a maximum enrollment of 21, and the staff-to-student ratio is maintained at 1:7 to allow for plenty of individualized attention for students. Class is held 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday; students must be age four by September 1 to enter the program. Kindergarten Readiness begins August 26 and continues through May, following the Folsom Cordova Unified School District instructional calendar (except staff development days).
