Nursery School Program
Our Nursery Program seeks to strike a balance between learning through play and directed learning activities. Academics will focus on kindergarten readiness activities. Students use the gym each day and are involved in art and music as well.
Our target class size for Nursery is 18 students. The class has a full time educational assistant in addition to our teacher.
The School Year
The Nursery program operates from the second week of September until the second week of June. There are no classes over the school’s Christmas or Spring Breaks. If there is no school for K-8, the Nursery Program will not operate. These dates will be given to families at the start of the year and is available on monthly paper calendars, as well as on the school’s online calendar found on the website.

Doors open for at 8:30 AM. School is finished at 11:30 AM. Beginning in September 2019 we will have Afternoon Care for Nursery Students. This program will run from 11:30 AM- 3:00 PM. Families that need care beyond regular school hours can access the Circle of Friends Before and After School Program.

Program Options and Costs
Children may be registered for the Two Day Program (Tuesdays and Thursdays)at a cost of $115/month or the three day program (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) at a cost of $160/month.

This program can be used on a part time or full time basis. Fees are billed according to your child’s use of the program. Families who are part-time fill in a calendar so that staff can plan accordingly. If you need care before 8:30 AM or after 3:00 PM, you can access the Circle of Friends Before and After School program. Fees for that program are found on that program’s info sheet.
Afternoon care costs will be dependent on your family’s use of the program. Full time afternoon care is $147 / month (M, W, F) or $106.50 (T, TH). Part time use of the program is $18/afternoon.
