The Two-Year Old Class is available for those children who exhibit readiness to leave home for a few mornings each week. These children are exposed to art, music, play, toilet training, cooking, and socialization. The teachers are very loving and help the children to successfully separate from home and family.

The Three-Year Old Class is for those children who turn three by September 30th. These are children who have been potty trained, and are learning to become more and more independent. Colors and Shapes are presented to the children, as well as numbers and letters, all in a format that is age appropriate. Also included: foreign language, as well as group experiences in music, cooking, literature, art and gardening.

The Four-Year Old Class is available for any child who is 4 by September 30th. In this class, the children are prepared for Kindergarten, by being part of a larger group and much time is spent becoming self-sufficient. Numbers and letters, as well as emerging writing skills are worked on. There are weekly cooking, science, math and French experiences offered, as well as art, music and physical activities outside along with lots of fun!

The Junior Kindergarten is a class for children who turn 5 in the fall and are too young for regular Kindergarten, or for a child who needs an extra year before starting public school. Much time is spent in group activities, such as listening tapes, journals, workbooks, science, math and French. Challenges are offered to the children daily in the form of brain games, etc., and computer time is available daily as well. Music, stories, games and fun help to round out the curriculum.
