Part Day Early Learning

For Ages 3-5 Years Old

Our part day early learning enrichment program is for toddlers 3-5 years old. Offered 2 days a week, for 3 hours, the structured environment is designed to help a child to transition from a home care setting and prepare for a formal preschool setting. Activities focus on social and behavioral skills along with cognitive, gross and fine motor skills. One teacher per 4 to 5 children.
