Graduation may be over for TCU’s class of 2015, but some of TCU’s littlest Horned Frogs are just getting ready to walk across the graduation stage. On June 19, KinderFrogs School at TCU graduated thirteen students, its largest class since the school opened in 2000.
KinderFrogs School is Tarrant County’s only early intervention educational program for children with Down syndrome and other developmental delays, as well as typically developing children. KinderFrogs School serves children ages 18 months to five years.
“We are so excited to celebrate the largest class in our fifteen year history,” said Dr. Marilyn Tolbert, director and Jean W. Roach Chair of Laboratory Schools at TCU. “Our graduates are ready to venture out to area schools and will continue to inspire, grow and succeed. We look forward to cheering them on as they continue their educational journey.”
Graduates of KinderFrogs are fully prepared to enter kindergarten in a public or private school setting. They have learned math, science and literacy, as well as gained social, independent and mechanical skills through occupational, physical, musical and speech therapy.
KinderFrogs School also serves as an on-campus training site providing research and service opportunities for students and faculty in TCU College of Education and other university programs.
