Age: must be 3 by September 1
Meets 3-4 mornings a week (depending on enrollment)
Maximum number of kids: 16 students (one teacher and 2 assistants)
A continuation of all good things or again, a wonderful introduction
into pre-school. Painting, music, circle-time, outdoor play, and field
trips are just a few of the things your family will experience in this
Children are introduced to sharing, growing, and
participating in group activites while enjoying their new-found independence.
Parent involvement is key in the success of this program and there are
lots of fun ways, as a parent, to be a part of the action!
" Adult-to-child-ratio: I've spoken to friends and family who work in education, and have
been involved in preschool teaching and/or daycare, and they’re very impressed by this. Our group
this year averages about 3 adults (one teacher, two parents) for 10-12 children. It's great to
be on such familiar terms with the girls' teacher. You learn new stuff about them and their
abilities. I like the balance of directed activities and free-form play. They can follow
their instincts and gravitate to a number of ever-changing, always accessible and appealing
activities. The atmosphere is one of trust: trust that the kids will learn, trust that they
will behave, and trust that they will treat others well."
