Tot-Lot – This program is for children who are 3 years old.  We meet one day a week, on Fridays, for a 2-hour session.  This is a fabulous opportunity to introduce your child to pre-school and give them an opportunity to socialize with other children his/her age and to gain some independence.  Classes run in 3 10-week sessions and there is a tuition for this program, which is $75.00 every 10 weeks.  There is currently room in this program.  Please call to register.

GSRP/Pre-KindergartenChildren must be 4 years of age by Sept. 1st.  Classes meet for four half-day sessions per week.  Children are exposed to a variety of experiences which include gross motor/fine motor activities, music, art, computers, socialization and pre-academics.  Teaching is done in a fun, “hands-on” way through learning centers that are developmentally appropriate.  Thematic units are planned that engage children in a fun way that promote socialization, independence and cooperative learning.  There is no fee for this program.
