Extended Pre-K

Our Extended Pre-K program is designed for those children who just miss the kindergarten cut off date or for the children who are being granted "The Gift of Time" and waiting a year before going to Kindergarten.  The longer day allows for an additional hour of education activities offered on small group settings that are designed to help enhance all aspects of development.  The children also benefit by having the experience of eating lunch at school with their friends each day.

 

Class time is from 8:30 A.M. - 1:00 P.M. a

2 days (Tuesday & Thursday)
