    Class structure will be developed based on the needs of the classroom; each classroom will be designed for 3 to 4 year-olds and 4 to 5 year-olds.  This will support the developmental age of children and the approaches to learning.

    Class placement is limited and accepted based on age parameters in each classroom, the class structures, and the amount of spaces per classroom.  Peer model spots in the program are first available to children currently enrolled.

    If your child has an Individualized Education Plan, or IEP, there is no cost for the half-day preschool program.  If your child is enrolling as a typical peer model, cost information is below.
