Jump Start


We look forward to seeing your kindergarten students in September!


Jump Start is a pre-kindergarten, transitional program usually conducted in August for children preparing to enter kindergarten in September. There is no charge for this program, and it is open to all registered kindergarten students. All Edmonds School District elementary schools will be offering Jump Start for the 2022-23 school year.

The focus is on preparing your child for success in kindergarten - familiarizing your child with the school environment, the kindergarten teachers, and the daily schedule. Children will be involved in typical kindergarten classroom activities, tour the school campus, and experience outdoor play just like they will at recess. This fun, positive experience helps our kindergarten students become familiar with school before school begins. It supports students and families for a positive transition into kindergarten.
