Two-day 2's and Three-day 2's Our two-year-old program is designed for children who are ready for independent play time with peers. Classes incorporate activities that foster age-appropriate development and encourage learning through play. Children explore art, sensory experiences, gym time, music, and other activities. At the beginning of the school year, classes are staffed to assist children with separation from their parents. Each class has a 12-child maximum with two teachers and an aide at the beginning of the program.
Children can attend 2, 3, or 5 days by registering for both classes.
Children who will be two by September 1
Two-day 2s: Tuesday and Thursday: 9:15 am - 11:15 am Three-day 2s: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: 9:15 am - 11:15 am Each class requires a minimum of eight children and a maximum of 12.
*Lunch Bunch is also offered on select days for parents who wish to keep their children at school until noon. Learn more about Lunch Bunch.
Five-day 3's* Our three-year-old program provides a rich learning environment for children in a play setting. Children will discover their world through science, math, early literacy, block play, gross motor activities, art activities, and much more. The main goals of our three-year-old program are to encourage positive peer interactions and foster strong self-esteem. Children are taught, through example, to interact with their peers and are encouraged to negotiate interactions with others. Children do not need to be fully toilet trained by the beginning of the school year.
Children who will be three by September 1
Monday-Friday: 9:00am-11:30am Each class requires a minimum of ten children and a maximum of 20. *Enrichment classes are offered on a lottery basis to supplement our three-year-old program from 11:30am-1:00pm
Jr.Kindergarten** Our four-year-old class meets for four hours a day and is filled with rich, junior kindergarten experiences. Learning through play, we explore the joys of math, science art and music, while also creating a literacy rich environment that promotes pre-reading skills and experimentation with letter-sound recognition. Through collaboration, children learn the value of teamwork and cooperation.
Class activities are designed to prepare students for kindergarten. All of our fours participate in small group learning, or "pull outs", with our Kindergarten Readiness Specialty Teacher. Lessons are focused on strengthening skills in the areas of literacy, math, and science.
We include a hot lunch every day. In addition to the socialization and language development that occurs at meal time, children are learning to manage their time during meals, a necessary skill for kindergarten.
Our goals for children completing the four-year-old program are:
gain an age-appropriate academic foundation
foster a love of learning
encourage respect for self and others
build great self-esteem
Children who will be four by September 1
