2-Day

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays  [9:00 am to 12:00 pm]
Age Requirement: 2.5 to 3 year olds (must be 2.5 by September 1)
Tuition: $262 per month

This is where the journey begins. For most of the 2-Day class, this is their first experience in a school setting. While this is an ever-exciting time, transitioning is a process for families, children, and teachers. Young toddlers start out slowly, building trust in their environment. Children begin building relationships with new friends and teachers, exploring an exciting new environment, and navigating the challenges of shared space and materials. The children of the 2-Day class benefit from a smaller class size and higher adult:child ratio, allowing teachers to work diligently with young toddlers in their first social experience.  This year is centered around adjusting to being a part of a community outside the home.

3-Day

When: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday  [9:00 am to 12:00 pm]
Age Requirement: 3 to 4 year olds  
Tuition: $330 per month

The journey continues in the 3-Day class. Friendships become the center of the experience as children start to build emotional attachments to their friends. Now that children are playing together, rather than alongside each other, the environment poses new challenges and experiences for them. Dramatic play scenarios begin to develop during this year and children come back to and deepen their roles in their play. Children become competent in problem solving, negotiating, communicating, and truly understanding their role within the community.

4-Day

When: Monday through Thursday [9:00 am to 1:00 pm]
Age Requirement: 4 to 5 year olds  
Tuition: $518 per month

As they have begun to master the initial challenges of the preschool experience, most children of the 4-Day class can fully engage in the environment. Teachers carefully plan more challenging activities and interest areas for this class, creating a different experience than in the other classes. Because the 4-Day kids have become more competent in social situations, the children and teachers are free to work individually or in small groups on more in depth, complex projects. Children are given the opportunity to engage in activities such as handwork, experiments, and directed art experiences, among other things.
