School’s Cool is about leveling the playing field for all children entering kindergarten.  The goal of  the program is to provide an opportunity where every child has had a good start to school and is on a pathway for school success.
 
The School’s Cool program uses a solution-focused approach to help give preschoolers confidence, school readiness skills, and an excitement for learning.

In 24 sessions, School’s Cool can help decrease the skill gap between children who are ready and those who are not ready for school.
School’s Cool has the results it does because of a unique and deliberate combination of 10 factors:
