Entering Kindergarten

Welcome to the Batesville Primary School kindergarten program. BPS is pleased to offer a full day kindergarten program that is safe and nurturing and will optimize your child’s development.

BPS kindergarten teachers understand that this year will be one of the most important milestones in your child’s life – the first year of school!  They work hard to ensure a successful adjustment to school because kindergarten will often influence the child’s perception, attitudes, and performance in subsequent school years.
