Fall Trimester of Practically Preschool

Our Practically Preschool program is designed to be an introduction to the experience of school. As a “bridge” to preschool, our enriching playgroup approach provides a setting for children to explore, learn, and grow. Our small class sizes (maximum of 6-8 children) provide an intimate setting in which to explore the world of the classroom. Our program uses a stepping up approach to help transition children between the three levels in our program. This subtle transition allows the children to feel comfortable and supported while the role of the parent/caregiver slowly diminishes, giving the child the opportunity to gain greater social and emotional confidence. Our teachers offer a nurturing environment with a routine that gives children the confidence to know what is coming next, and allows them to focus on learning something new.

All our staff are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. We continue to implement some additional Covid-19 precautions, such as: filtered air in the classroom; requiring masks for adults (and preferred for children over 2 who will wear them); ample space in the center for physical distancing; maximum of 6-8 students in each class; snacks provided with individual, disposable supplies.
