Our registration packet will provide you with all the class options. We offer a variety of classes for children 2-½ through 6 years of age. Several class options are available for each age group. Children are grouped according to age.
In order to help the children make a gentle, happy adjustment to school, we use a graduated schedule for the first several sessions of school for our “Intro” and “Threes” classes. These classes are divided in half in order to give all children more individual attention during the first few days. This staggered start generates a positive, relaxed atmosphere conducive to quick adjustment to school. On the first day of school, parents attend with their children for a one-hour session.
|Intro I & II||2:10||Threes||2:14|
|Intro III||2:08||Fours|| 2:14 to 2:17 |

Children enjoy weekly 1-hour sessions that promote social, language, and motor skills via music, stories, and finger plays, utilizing equipment/materials designed for toddlers.

Pre-K Program (4D)
We offer a Pre-K Program designed for older 4-year-olds and young 5-year-olds who will not be attending Kindergarten in the Fall. This accommodates children who either miss the age cut off for Kindergarten (5 years by Oct 1) or who would be better served by another year of preschool. This Pre-K class provides a curriculum on a continuum. It builds on prior skills and presents age appropriate challenges, thus easing the transition between nursery school and Kindergarten.
We also offer a daily Lunch Bunch option for 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds. A child can extend the day with a supervised lunch period lasting 30–45 minutes.
