Class Descriptions:

Two-Year-Old Program

This program is a great way to introduce your child to a preschool setting. This class focuses on becoming comfortable with separation from parent or guardian, encouraging independence, learning to share, and fostering communication skills. Fine and gross motor skills are enhanced through manipulatives, art, gym time, and group activities. Children do not need to be toilet-trained.

Three-Year-Old Program

This program provides children with a wide variety of learning experiences in a more structured environment. Children will learn through play and will create projects to enhance their knowledge. Colors, letters, shapes, and number recognition are explored through hands-on activities. Children are required to be toilet-trained.

Four-Year-Old Program

This program will enhance social skills and play-based learning with a focus on kindergarten readiness. Children will review colors, shape, and number recognition, and will practice letter and name writing. The class will build on activities that focus on identifying, comparing, contrasting, and problem-solving. The school year ends with a graduation ceremony. Children are required to be toilet-trained.

Learning Ladders

This program is an extension and enhancement of the M/W/F Four-Year-Old program, as it takes place on opposite days. It is designed for children who are ready for a longer school day and an additional two days of school per week. The class focuses on the exploration of math and science discovery concepts through interesting themes such as Animals, Outer Space, Dinosaurs, The Body, and more! Children are required to bring a nut-free lunch each day. Children are required to be toilet trained.
