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.

Children 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.

Enrollment in any of these above programs, you will find our wonderful staff.  They are truly gifted and talented individuals who have a heart and love for young children.
