WE HAVE EXCITING NEWS.....Our class times are now 3 hours in length.  After surveying our parents, we have chosen to extend our hours so each class will be here longer.  We contemplated doing a 3 day program but parents expressed the difficulty in transporting their child here 2 days a week, let alone 3 days a week.  Therefore, we chose to extend hours but will also do a once-per-month extra class for any Pre-K who would like it.  This extra class will be on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 12:15-3:15. This class is team-taught by 2 of our certified teachers and it is an extension of our lesson plans, but will also be used to work in small groups on an individualized areas needed.  This class is limited and will be closed after that limit is met.  

Class choices are: 
Monday & Wednesday Mornings 8:30-11:30
Monday & Wednesday Afternoons 12:15-3:15
Tuesday & Thursday Mornings 8:30-11:30

Cost for Preschool and Pre-K classes will be $118 per month for one child; $223 per month for 2 children. The extra Pre-K class offered on the 2nd Tuesday of the month is an additional $18 per month. 
$40 registration fee for one child/$60 registration fee for families with more than one child.
