Classes & Times
We are open Mon-Friday from 6:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. for our full time program. Our full time program serves children ages 2 ½ years -Kindergarten. Full time programming includes the preschool curriculum, afternoon camps and our summer camp programming.
Our part time classes are from 8:45-11:45. This class is available for 4-5 (any child not in kindergarten yet) year olds on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please refer to the school calendar for our part time pre-k start and end dates, as this program is based on a 10 month school calendar, and payment is due monthly. This monthly payment is the same, regardless of the number of days the child attends due to holidays and school closures, or child attendance. We also ask that part time preschool parents provide 1 snack per month for the entire class. The classroom teacher will have a sign up sheet at the first of every month.
Miss Shantel's Little Monets (2½-3 year olds)
This class is ages 2.½-3 years. We will be focusing on the Level 1 of our curriculum. The critical skills for each month will be posted on my door for parents to see at all times. The month of September will be very busy, but for the next two weeks we will be working on establishing a classroom routine. I will be experimenting with the schedule to see what is going to be the best routine for this class so that I can create the best learning environment for the kids.
This year will be very focused on hands-on activities for the kids to experiment and explore. We will do some worksheets, but the activities we do in class will always cover the skills that we will be working to master that month. I like to find and create activities that serve many purposes. My activities can be challenging or simplified, that way it can be adapted to each individual child. If ever you have questions or concerns about the curriculum or your child's learning in the class, my door and ears are always open.
If ever you have any questions, concerns. or even prayers, I'm very open and easy to work with.
Miss Emylee's Little Mozart's (Part Time M-W-F)
The part time class is Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays from 8:45am to 11:45am. We follow the Core Knowledge curriculum and have a new set of skills to reach every month. We work on both Level 1 and Level 2 skills and these skills will be posted on the teacher board outside of my classroom.
If you ever have any questions or concerns please let me know!
Mrs. Alayna's Little Earhart's (3-4 year olds)
