Parent and Me Class

Requirements: Child must have a parent/guardian with them in the class. Children must be 21 months by the first day of the class.

Parent & Me is a fun classroom experience designed to help the child achieve new milestones, and promote development. Our classes encourage multi-sensory experiences to stimulate language, socialization, creativity, and independence in your child. Classes are for students that are too young for our 3’s program or not quite ready to separate from their families.  

3-year old Class

Requirements: All students must be 3years of age on or before December 16, 2022
Children must be toilet proficient.  Children in the 3’s are allowed to wear pull-ups for a short time while they transition toward toilet proficiency.

The 3’s class presents a learning environment designed to help promote your child’s growth and development while we LEARN THROUGH PLAY.  Our teachers create a warm and nurturing classroom that allows students to flourish with core competencies focused on communication (language development), creativity (a variety of mediums), and social/emotional growth (building on resilience and relationships). We balance light academic learning with socialization and lots of fun to inspire a love of learning.

 

4-year old Class

Requirements: All students must be 4 years of age on or before December 16, 2022. Children must be toilet trained.  

Our 4’s teachers provide a hands-on learning environment that encourages preschoolers’ natural curiosity to learn by introducing a strong curriculum that builds confidence and resilience in a PLAY environment.  In our classrooms, we incorporate a perfect balance of academics and play focusing on pre-reading, pre-writing, and math skills along with art, music, and the skills of communication, collaboration, and problem-solving.  Our goal is to give our 4’s a full year of social-emotional growth in developmentally appropriate classroom routines.
