The Full-Day classes will have a rest period and the children will need to bring a sack lunch. The morning will be the core preschool program and the extra time in the afternoon will be a continuation of all the wonderful activities and lessons.
The children in this classroom will have more time to master skills and work on projects. It will be fun!
All 3- and 4-year-old programs are two-year programs. Your 3-year-old will be able to continue with their same class, teacher and friends for two years. The first year your 3 year old will benefit from watching and playing with the 4 year olds and your 3 year old will achieve greater success by following the older students lead. The second year in the program is just as important as the first. Your 3 year old is now 4 and gets to be the leader in the classroom to all the new 3 year olds, while still being challenged cognitively by our wonderful teachers.
