Parents who wish to have their child enrolled in the Spring 2021 BOOST session that’s sponsored by Lexington County School District Three should go ahead and send in an application as soon as possible. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a total of 12 children will be enrolled in this Spring’s program--6 children in the Monday/Wednesday session and 6 children in the Tuesday/Thursday session.
Applications and instructions on where to submit them can be found by visiting www.lex3.org and looking under the Student Information tab. Applications must be turned in by no later than January 15th.
BOOST, which stands for Beginning Opportunities Offered for Student Transition, is a unique Lexington Three program that’s designed to engage families with 2- and 3-year-olds in a Montessori learning environment. Using Montessori materials, children participating in BOOST develop focus and concentration, improve motor skills and expand their cognitive development. Parents, who attend the classes alongside their child, are able to develop new knowledge of the Montessori program (which is offered as a program choice at B-L Primary School for children in grades K4 through second), learn about early brain development and are introduced to the importance of language and literacy. Ultimately, the goal of the program is to provide families with a positive school experience and kick-start children’s preparations for kindergarten.
Questions relating to the Lexington County School District Three BOOST program can be directed to Debbie Teer, BOOST Coordinator, at (803) 315-8184.
