Class Descriptions

Toddlers: (Busy Bees) Toddlers must be have had their 2nd birthday to start the program. They do not need to be potty trained. Toddlers will spend time doing many tactile activities, music and movement, arts and crafts, story time and lots of social interaction and play.

Preschool (Caterpillars) for children between ages 2 years, 6 mo - 4 years. Curriculum is preschool basics: numbers, colors, letters, and shapes along with the other subjects mentioned in the curriculum portion of this website. There is a hands-on approach and there is much play included in this program balancing the fundamentals.

Pre-K (Butterflies) for students between the ages of 3 years, 6 mo and age 5. This class prepares children for Kindergarten through an excellent academic and developmentally balanced curriculum built upon the foundational basics learned in Preschool. Additional preparation through phonics, pre-reading, math, science, music, and art, combined with play and self-directed activities round out this class.

Jr. K ( Happy Frogs) for those students typically age 4 years 6 mo to 6 years who either miss the December 2 cutoff for Kindergarten entrance or would benefit from an additional year before Kindergarten entry either due to a Fall birthday or lack of readiness. This is a Kindergarten curriculum including the scope and sequence meeting the requirements of the State of California but taught in a smaller, more nurturing environment than other Kindergartens.

All regular classes are 3 hours with the exception of Toddlers which is 2 hours
