Children 2 ½ - 3 years old have their first positive experiences in a preschool classroom and become comfortable separating from parents for a regular period of time. Development of social skills, large and small motor skills and basic curriculum concepts are a part of your child’s day. Diapers and pull-ups are acceptable, to begin with, but children should be on their way to taking care of their own toileting needs. This class runs 2 days per week.

4-Year Old Program
In this program, 4-year-olds strengthen relationships with friends and teachers and begin to understand responsibility as
they become more self-sufficient. The curriculum focuses on emerging literacy, math, science, creative art and fine motor skills
to prepare children for Kindergarten.
The Pre-K program is designed for children 4 ½ -5 years old who are ready for additional time in the classroom. This program
takes our 4-year-old curriculum to the next level with in-depth exposure to pre-literacy, math, self-expression skills and class projects. Bi-monthly field trips, science lab time and cooking classes are built into the cost of the class.
Children from Spanish or English speaking homes are welcome to register for the 3-year-old or 4-year-old class. The teachers, fluent in both languages, will focus on our regular preschool curriculum while teaching the children in Spanish and in English. This preschool class is a great option for those children wishing to develop skills with a new language.
