There are three preschool sessions available: The 5 day-a-week preschool (Monday through Friday; 8am to 11am) curriculum focuses on Kindergarten readiness and STEM and is suitable for students who have previously attended preschool or students who will enter Kindergarten the following school year. This is typically a mixed age class of 4 and 5-year-old students.
The 3 day-a-week preschool (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday; 8am to 11am) curriculum focuses more heavily on classroom routines, social-emotional development, and school-readiness skills, including pre-math, literacy and STEM. This class is suitable for students who are new to preschool or for families who need the flexibility of a 3 day-a-week schedule. This is typically a mixed age class of 3, 4 and 5-year-old students.
The 2 day-a-week preschool (Monday, Friday; 8am to 11am) curriculum focuses on transitioning students to school and school routines, developing social-emotional skills, language, literacy, some STEM activities and pre-math. This class is suitable for students who are new to preschool, would benefit from a smaller class size or for families who need the flexibility of a two-day-a-week program. This is typically a mixed age class of 3, 4 and 5-year-old students.
