"Little Angels" Preschool Programs:
4 Year Old Programs: In addition to a comprehensive Kindergarten readiness program, technology, Spanish, movement, and music are included to target age-appropriate growth while incorporating both free and directed play.
Child must be 4 in accordance with the sending district's age requirements.
We offer a 5-day, Monday through Friday program, as well as a 3-day, Monday - Wednesday-Friday program. Both classes are from 7:45 AM - 2:00 PM.
3 Year Old Programs: Children learn fundamentally through play because learning is optimum when it is fun. The best way for our 3 year olds to learn through play is with movement, exploration, music, and pre-reading lessons. All children must be 3 years old before October 1, and be toilet trained before starting school.
We offer a 5-day, Monday through Friday program, as well as a 3-day Monday-Wednesday-Friday program. Children can be enrolled in either program for full days (7:45 AM - 2:00 PM), or half days (7:45 AM - 12:00 Noon).
