Remote Learning

 

During the 2020-2021 academic year, we offered our families that could not attend class in-person a monthly packet of activities combined with online instruction on a private platform. We will continue to offer occasional, optional online instruction during 2022-2023 as a means to supplement in-class instructions, as a remote learning option on inclement weather days (snow days), or if increased COVID cases require a temporary shut-down.

​3-Year Old Preschool Class

The child must be three years old by December 31st of the upcoming year to enroll for the school year for this class. The sessions are two hours long, 9:30-11:30, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Each day begins with classroom instruction, when the project of the day (worksheet or craft) is discussed. The remainder of the day includes one-on-one work with the teacher, free time for supervised play in one of our 6 rooms, snack, and a story. Music, art and physical education are also included as part of our routine, as well. Our 3-year-old program assists with developing early social skills and early childhood academics in a fun, nurturing environment.

​4-Year Old Preschool Class

The child must be four years old by December 31st of the upcoming year to enroll for the school year. The sessions are two and one half hours long, 9:00-11:30, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Each day begins with classroom instruction, when the project of the day (worksheet or craft) is discussed and calendar reviewed. The remainder of the day includes one-on-one or group work with the teacher, free time for supervised play in one of our 6 rooms, snack, and a story. Music, art and physical education are also included as part of our routine, as well. Our 4-year-old program curriculum is designed help prepare our students academically and socially for kindergarten.

Transitional Class

This class is offered to children who have completed the Four Year Old Program, or a comparable program at another preschool, and are not quite ready to attend kindergarten, either socially, academically or they miss school district's cut-off date. The sessions are two and one half hours long, 9:00-11:30, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Each day begins with classroom instruction, when the project of the day (worksheet or craft) is discussed.
