Pre-K Programs

Class Information

These classes allow your child to be in a group environment with peers to enhance their social, motor and communication skills in a fun and safe environment.

Classes are geared toward specific age groups so children have similar skill levels, allowing them to feel confident while engaging in age-appropriate learning activities.  

Programs are offered from August to May to follow the same school schedule siblings might have.  Sessions typically run in 6-week intervals, allowing children to move up into new classes as they get older.

All classes encourage children to participate in activities at a level comfortable to them.
