Our Classes

Our classes follow a routine which includes free play time both indoors and outdoors, circle time for music and stories, and a snack time. There is a balance of individual and group play, of quiet and active play. A challenging variety of activities is offered each day for the uniqueness of each child. Our program is multi-cultural and promotes sharing our diverse heritage.  Nature hikes, special guests and field trips help to enrich our children.

Each class curriculum is age appropriate and is developed and overseen by a credentialed teacher. A maximum 4:1 child/adult ratio is maintained in each class.

In Addition:

  • Parents are also required to attend a monthly membership meeting from 7:00-10:00 pm on the third Wednesday of each month. After a brief business meeting, parents meet with their class and teacher in order to discuss issues specific to each class.
  • Members participate in fundraising and school maintenance.
  • Members need to provide current health and emergency information. Our working parents are required to have a current TB test and flu shot.
