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!
For children enrolled in our Pre-K programs, we are thrilled to offer this exceptional enrichment program to our students. Spanish Enrichment is offered for any Pre-K student who is ready for an additional hour of class. Students are able to lengthen their school day by eating lunch with their teacher and peers, while learning a foundation of Spanish.
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.
