Chartered Kindergarten

The Chartered Advantage

Most parents are not aware that other private Kindergarten programs may not be academically-proven or even approved by the Department of Education. In fact, most day centers offer a Kindergarten program that is licensed through the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services which holds them to state daycare standards only.

Children's Academy of Mason, on the other hand, charters our Kindergarten program through the Ohio Department of Education. We adhere to strict standards set forth for teacher credentials and quality of curriculum. We also incorporate all Academic Content Standards set forth by the Department of Education. We work closely with local schools to ensure complete readiness for the 1st grade - and then we exceed those readiness guidelines. It is typical for our students to be reading at a 2nd grade level upon graduation from the Kindergarten program.
