Is kindergarten too young for virtual learning?
Is kindergarten too young for virtual learning?

As parents across Michigan register their five year olds for kindergarten, many may wonder if virtual learning is the right solution for their child. Others may believe kindergarten is too young for virtual learning. Before deciding, parents are encouraged to attend a Kindergarten Round-Up session hosted by Michigan Connections Academy. Experts in virtual learning will be on hand to provide critical insight on this 21st century learning alternative.  

Michigan Connections Academy offers a complete online learning experience from home for students in grades K-12 that combines a high quality education, flexible scheduling, Michigan-certified teachers and an innovative, award-winning curriculum. 

“Many parents that are interested in sending their kindergartener to an online school are doing so because they wish to be an active participant in their child’s education,” said Bryan Klochak, principal at Michigan Connections Academy. “Our young learners succeed because of an involved learning coach – a parent or other adult – that works closely with their teacher to create a supportive learning environment in the home.”

Mchigan Connections Academy school teachers are specially trained in the nuances of online instruction and frequently communicate with both the student and the learning coach. In the virtual classroom, teachers are able to create the same real-time, lively interactions of a traditional classroom, but in an online setting.
