The Children's School is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., September through June. Parents have the option of full- or half-day programs and may enroll children in a three-, four-, or five-day program. Children ages two years, seven months (in September) through five years are eligible to attend.
Throughout the day, children are involved in a variety of developmentally engaging activities, such as storytelling, building, painting, and gardening. These and many other experiences provide children with opportunities to develop socially, cognitively, and physically as they make connections and develop tools to express themselves.
The Children's School offers a full-day kindergarten program. In addition to the opportunities for cooperative play available within the learning community, kindergartners extend their learning through mathematical explorations, long-term science projects, and developmentally geared experiences designed to facilitate their reading and writing skills.
We provide nutritious snacks, often prepared by the children themselves. We encourage rest time for children who stay for the afternoon.
