Almost 3’s Program
(For children who are 2 1/2 by September 1). This introduction to preschool allows children to have their first school experience in a friendly play-based environment. We work to promote independence, socialization, and self-esteem. Though helpful, it is not required that your child be potty-trained to participate in this class.
(For children who are 3 by September 1). For some children, this program builds on the foundation of our Almost 3’s class. For others, it provides a comfortable first school experience. In either situation, this class encourages independence, cooperative play and creativity.
(For children who are 4 by September 1). This program is designed to prepare your child for Kindergarten, as we continue to build on the learning and developmental goals of our earlier classes. In a child-friendly, yet structured environment, we facilitate learning while encouraging independence and creativity. Our goal is to foster a high level of understanding, independence, and overall skill competency.
Small Group Teacher for AM Pre-K: Jeannie Francis
Small Group Teacher for PM Pre-K: Marcy Dusza
(For Children enrolled in a Pre-K class). Our enrichment class incorporates both unstructured and structured play, learning centers, stories, songs and crafts. We reinforce the alphabet and numbers through creative play!
Kid’s Day Out
Our Kid’s Day Out (KDO) program provides a safe and caring environment for children ages 2 through 5. It is a loosely structured program that provides an opportunity for children to make new friends while engaging in creative play and a variety of special activities.
