Almost 3s (must be 2 by April 30)        Deposit $400 & 3 Installments of $1282        $4246 for the year

A class tailored for children who miss the cut-off for 3s preschool by just a few months (children will turn 2 before April 30). Our Almost 3s learn three days a week as they play side-by-side with new friends and trusted teachers. Predictable routines foster independence, while singing, painting and pretend play encourage creativity. Young minds grow naturally through exploration and experimentation, with skilled staff at hand to guide and support.  Max. 11 students.
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 8:30- 11:00 am

 

New options for enrollment:    Enroll in the Monday/Tuesday 2s class if your child’s birthday falls after April 1, or those days suit your child’s needs and your schedule best regardless of age.  If you feel your older 2-year-old is ready for the fun of three days of preschool, the Wednesday/Thursday/Friday Almost 3s class is your class!  Eager learners who adjust well to variety and social activities may consider enrolling in both M/T 2s and W-F Almost 3s.
