Half-Day   Monday-Friday  8:15AM-11:30AM
Full-Day  Monday-Friday 8:15AM-2:30PM


This program serves our children ages 3 to 6 years of age. The school day for children in the Primary Program is 8:15AM-11:30AM for children in their 3 year old year and 8:15AM-2:30PM for children in their 4 and 5 year old years. The extended day for the 4 and 5 year old years allows the children to stay in their regular morning classroom with their teachers for lunch and an additional afternoon work period. The extended day is designed to give the children more time to work on their individual paths of learning, as well as to allow for small group enrichment activities. Children in their 3 year old year who need a longer day may opt to participate in the Lunch Bunch program. Additionally, the After School Program is offered for Primary children from 2:30PM-5:00PM in an effort to better serve the needs of our families.

Lunch Bunch Program (Full-Day)

(24 months – 3 years)

This program serves our children ages 24 months – 3 years who stay for a longer day until the 2:30 dismissal. Children transition to the Cottage for lunch and an extended rest period. This is followed by a period of indoor activity and/or outdoor play.
