Program Details

Our primary program is our preschool, serving children ages 18 months through 5 years old. We have four classrooms with overlapping age-ranges in the mornings; as the day progresses the age groups join together for more mixed-age activities.


  • Our school-year runs for ten months, offering 185 days of service per year.
  • We offer 2-day (Monday–Tuesday), 3-day (Wednesday–Friday), and 5-day enrollment.
  • We offer schedules ending at 12:30 (part day), 3:00 (full day), and 6:00pm (extended day).
  • The school-day begins at 8:30am, with free early drop-off starting at 8:15. If COVID restrictions allow, we hope to be able to reinstitute free early drop off starting at 8:00am; it’s unclear when we will know if we can offer this option.
