2s (must be 2 by September 1)

Our 2s class is a great first start in “by myself” preschool, where loving teachers support children’s growing confidence in themselves and this new environment.  Stories, songs, and growing friendships develop social and language skills; tactile and active play round out this important first school experience.

Almost 3s (must be 2 by April 30)

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.

 4-Day (must be 3 by 9/1)

Preschool suits 3’s to a tee, with learning embedded in hands-on, play experiences that delight and engage young children while building math, science and language skills.  Child-directed and teacher-led learning share a place in these busy classrooms, where stories, music, discovery and discussion help children make friends and learn about their world.

Pre-Kindergarten (must be 4 by 9/1)

The important Pre-K year builds on a foundation of confidence and curiosity as children explore, experiment, problem-solve, create and move in an environment structured to provide the learning experiences needed for success in the kindergarten year to come.  “Missteps” become steps towards understanding as children learn the value of making mistakes and testing new ideas in an environment of acceptance and respect.
