TK & Kindergarten

Welcome to Valle Verde Children’s Center. We are a play-based program, which enhances your child’s TK/K experience. Children are active learners and will experience art, sensory, engineering, gardening, our outdoor art area, science, and more! They will sing, laugh, read books, learn how to be a good friend, and make strong bonds in the community. We work hard to meet the social-emotional aspects of your child’s life.

Both Early & Late Friends may arrive at the center as early as 7 AM and stay until dismissal – 2:30 PM (MTTHF), 1:30 PM (W) – or any time until 4:30 PM or 6 PM.

All TK/Ks are dropped off and picked up at their classrooms by VVCC teachers.

What to know about TK/Kindergarten at VVCC

Children will need to bring snacks to eat outside while at VVCC. Snack time is at 9:20 AM for our Late Friends and 12:45 PM for our Early Friends.
If children are staying after dismissal, there is another snack time at 2:30 PM. TK/Ks will eat their lunch with their school class. Please make sure your child has enough snacks to last them through the day.

Each child will have a cubby to store their belongings while at VVCC. They should bring a set of spare clothes to keep in their cubby and need a reusable water bottle daily, labeled with their name.

VVCC is still adhering to COVID-19 guidelines per Community Care Licensing. Children will remain outside while eating, wear masks while indoors, and wash hands frequently.

VCCC has blocks of time available to meet your family’s scheduling needs.
