We provide a child-centered day: more engaged playtime and less transitions. September is a month of gradual entry. This means in order to help children ease into our preschool day, and gradually transition from home, we begin with shorter preschool sessions but within two weeks we are into full length classes. We are an allergy-aware and nut-free school. We are epi-pen trained.
