Evesham Township’s Coordinated Arts Program for Primary Students (CAPPS) is a four week summer program for selected pre-kindergarten students. The program is designed to provide opportunities to develop social readiness and academic skills with incoming kindergarten students who have a demonstrated need as determined during the spring kindergarten screening.
CAPPS integrates art, music and creative dramatics with skills in literacy and mathematics. Areas of focus also include development of gross and fine motor coordination, oral language and social interaction.
Students selected for CAPPS have been determined to benefit from additional development of social readiness and/or academic skills before entering kindergarten. Some children may need to develop comfortability in a social group setting while others may need to increase their experiences with basic kindergarten academic readiness concepts, such as counting, recognizing numerals 1-10, recognizing letters and shapes, and writing his/her own name.
Following participation in CAPPS, most students will go on to a successful year in kindergarten. A limited number of students may benefit from delaying their entrance to kindergarten for a year.
