Kindergarten Readiness: Mini Wonders and Mega Wonders

CMON offers two programs to help prepare you child for Kindergarten- Mega Wonders and Mini Wonders. 

MEGA Wonders is a 90-minute drop-off, kids-only class at CMON, with a hands-on approach to learning through play, helping to lay a strong educational foundation for kids ages 4, 5, and 6 years old

Mini Wonders is a 60-minute class, with new themes each week. This program guides your young ones to practice essential skills that enable the transition from PreK or home-based learning to a formal kindergarten classroom, designed for kids ages 3, 4, and 5 years old
