Summer Bridge is a school readiness program intended to support your child’s transition and promote a successful start in kindergarten. This year we are also opening this program up to incoming 1st graders, since we know the 2020-2021 kindergarten experience was not typical. Pre-registration is required and full participation in the 5 week program is highly encouraged as each week builds upon itself and creates a sense of continuity for the children. You can fill out the registration form Summer Bridge Application or Summer Bridge Application Spanish version and return it to nramirez@sgvcc.org or mail it in to PO BOX 194, San Geronimo, CA 94963.

During this program we will support your child in developing the following key kindergarten readiness skills:
