About the Program

SEEDLINGS is about introducing incoming kindergarteners to Burke’s through games, art, stories, groups activities, and physical play. SEEDLINGS is dedicated to offering a smooth transition from preschool to kindergarten in a wonderfully imaginative, and fun environment. Our program offers structured time for crafts, songs, story time, and creative dramatic play, and we also believe in self-motivated free playtime. Campers will learn, create, and explore with the girls who will be their classmates for years to come. Come and join the fun!
