What's Happening in your Neighborhood?

Our Winter Play, Learn and Grow class schedule for January is out. Click the class or classes you want to sign up for below. For those who are new to our program, please complete our online Registration Form along with the Sign Up Form.  This season we will offer 6-8 week sessions and limit our class sizes to a maximum of 8-10 families due to space size.  If you are entering Kindergarten the "Let's Go to Kindergarten" group is perfect for getting you and your child ready for school.  This group is open to families with children ages 3 to 5 who are not in a full time preschool program.  All children must be accompanied by an adult as our program is all about supporting the parent-child journey and introducing a high quality, strength-based early education experience.
