Unless you have your contract states that your child’s day begins at 8:00, a small fee applies to this option.
Our Earlybird Drop-off program allows parents to drop-off their children early if needed. This includes children who will be moving on to the MWF Class, the West Class or the South Class for the morning.
Our Afterschool Center offers a place for children who need a longer day. This may include children who began their mornings in either the North, West or South Classrooms.
For younger children, the Afterschool Center has nap-time from 1:30 to 3:00. Children from either the Explorer’s Class or the PM Class join the Afterschool Center after they are done in the afternoon.
Our Explorer’s Class is a special afternoon program for children who started out in the West or South Classrooms in the morning. It is enriched with special math, language, science, cooking, arts & crafts and geography activities that are geared toward older children.
Our Explorer’s Class is an afternoon enrichment program for our students who attend the 5 day am program. It is designed for children who might need a longer day and additional academic challenges. The routine of the Explorers’ class adheres to a more typical kindergarten format and therefore guides your child as s/he complete his/her last year of preschool and begin the transition into Kindergarten. The daily structure includes a whole group lesson, table work and after an independent work time, children gather on the rug to review the lesson of the day. The expectations of this classroom are such that children must be four years old in order to enroll in this class. Generally the class studies specific themes for a short period of time. We incorporate a multidisciplinary curriculum within the Explorers Class so that the children explore a specific theme in different ways. The curriculum incorporates math, language, science, cooking, arts & crafts, music, movement and geography activities that are geared toward children who will be moving up to Kindergarten next year. These activities are stimulating and fun for the children, but the standards of attention and independence are greater than those in our regular 5 day programs. If you are interested in this program for your son or daughter, please contact your child’s teacher or Jorinda for further discussion.
