There’s plenty of caring, one-to-one attention from teachers, and a special emphasis on helping our youngest students develop social skills.
The afternoon extended day program includes quiet table activities and games, outdoor fun and physical education, and a daily craft project; it ends on an entertaining note with stories, dramatic play, movement and music.
