Our Springboard to Kindergarten program is designed for children who have not had a high-quality preschool experience and whose families have financial need (based on the City of Palo Alto Income Ceiling Criteria). All students who apply for Springboard to Kindergarten must be registered for kindergarten in PAUSD for the upcoming school year.
We start our Springboard program in late January, after families have registered for kindergarten in PAUSD. For the 2019-2020 school year, Springboard to Kindergarten begins on January 27, 2020 and runs through June 4, 2020. Accepting applications now!
The mission of Springboard to Kindergarten is to give all children entering PAUSD the opportunity to have a high quality pre-k experience before they begin kindergarten. The goal of Springboard to Kindergarten is to improve kindergarten readiness and increase each child's potential for academic and social success in school.
