Classes

PRE-KINDERGARTEN (Age 4 by September 1)

A 3-hour class, meeting two, three or five days per week, which provides opportunities for social and emotional growth while preparing the children for Kindergarten. Children will be introduced to both upper and lower case letters, numbers (1-31), recognition and printing of first name, identification of basic shapes and colors, patterning and simple addition skills. Children’s ability to cut on a line is more fully developed. Children learn that they are part of a larger group and learn such skills as turn taking, cooperation, sharing and empathy.

The 2-day class will be abbreviated, providing the essentials necessary to prepare the child who is ready for Kindergarten while the 5-day class will be expanded to offer additional opportunities for growth & development and mastering of necessary skills. Children enrolled in the 5-day class will have some classmates who also attend all 5 days, some who only come on MWF and others who only come on TTh. They will have the same teacher and assistant for all 5 days.

Parents whose children have fall birthdays should consider their child’s maturity level when choosing between this class or the 3-Year-Old class. Children who are old enough to attend kindergarten but would benefit from an additional year may also enroll.

3-YEAR-OLDS (Age 3 on or before September 1st)

A 3-hour class, meeting two or three days per week, which provides opportunities to grow and develop with children of the same age. Children are encouraged to explore a variety of subject areas. Social skills are emphasized in this class where colors, shapes and numbers (1-13) are reinforced. Fine motor skills are developed through many activities that encourage a pincer grasp: scissors, drawing, play-dough, etc. Children’s independence is fostered as they master self-help skills and become more confident when separating from parents. Parents whose children have fall birthdays should consider their child’s maturity level when choosing this class or the 2-Year-Old class.

SUMMER SCHOOL

There will be 5 weeks of summer school.
Students may be enrolled for as many weeks as parents wish.

A discount will be given to anyone who enrolls in all 5 weeks
prior to Memorial Day Weekend.

Our summer school program is similar to our regular schedule, centered around a different theme each week. Summer school is available to children who will be entering our 3-Year-Old program through 5 years of age.

Classes MAY consist of mixed age groups (i.e. older 3 & younger 4 year olds or older 4 & younger 5 year olds) depending on the mix of students who enroll. For the youngest student and those who have not had a previous preschool experience, we strongly suggest that you sign-up for consecutive weeks. The child who is new to preschool may have a hard time readjusting after time off. If you enroll your child in non-consecutive weeks, there is a possibility there will be a change in teacher.
