Choosing a class

  • Three year old classes meet Tuesday and Thursday or Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings (9:00 – 11:45).
  • Four year old classes meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings (9:00 – 11:45).
  • A Tuesday and Thursday class is provided for very young fours, although because of the social nature four year olds, two days/week might be less satisfying than a three-day class.
  • The 4-day classes are “reserved” for older fours and young fives. (Generally those children whose 5th birthday occurs before May of the school year.)
  • The 5-day class is “reserved” for older fours and young fives. The teachers and classroom are the same throughout the week.

Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch extends the day until 1:30 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and/or Friday (corresponding to the child’s class schedule). Lunch Buddies bring a lunch and enjoy another playground time, lunch together, a gathering circle, story and a rich center time. More information about Lunch Bunch can be found here.
