Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic School has designated a separate classroom and teacher for its Young Fives program in an effort to improve the overall experience for students when classes resume in September.

Young Fives bridges the educational landscape between preschool and kindergarten.

It’s for students with summer and fall birthdays who don’t meet the state’s cutoff age of turning five on or before Nov. 1, 2013, to enroll in kindergarten. Additionally, it benefits students in need of extra time to grow spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially.

The program covers religion, language arts, math, science, social studies, motor skills and emotional and social development. Star will hire a teacher this summer.
