Our class will run early October through mid-May. We will meet Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays from 9:00-11:00am. Our classroom is in the Early Childhood wing of the Washington Elementary building.
Our curriculum is supported by the MN Early Childhood Indicators of Progress which focus on eight areas of learning: Social/Emotional; Approaches to Learning; Language, Literacy, & Communication; The Arts; Mathematics; Scientific Inquiry; Social Systems; and Physical & Movement Development. This program is designed to give young children the experience they need through play and guided discovery. Class size is limited to 12 students.
We will have orientation on Thursday, October 5th from 9:00-10:00am in the Preschool Classroom in the Washington Elementary School. You and your child are encouraged to attend this event to explore the classroom, meet the teacher, and turn in paperwork. The first class will be Tuesday, October 10th from 9:00-11:00am. If you are unable to attend the open house, please have all paperwork, including immunizations, submitted before your child attends their first day of class.
