early learning for the whole family

Clap Into Kindergarten® provides all the resources that children and their caregivers require to navigate the ever changing early learning landscape.  Established during a time when parents entered a virtual classroom, we are your expert at engaging children both virtually and in person.  From one-on-one enrichment to the classroom, we write our way to personal achievement.  Our enthusiastic style is one of patience, creativity, flexibility, and fun!
