Creative Center Preschool - SPRING 2014 Session

This ongoing creative child directed recreational program enhances your child's physical, emotional, social and academic growth. Music, arts and crafts, listening to stories, circle time, snacks (provided by parent), outdoor activities, working at activity stations, taking turns and free play are designed to meet these crucial growth needs. Hands on materials will foster fine and gross motor skills. The weekly themed curriculum that is used is the same for all classes each week. As classes are filled, a continuous waiting list for each class is established and maintained only for the current school year. Wait list participants will be contacted as spaces become available. To enter the 3 1/2 - 4 year old class, a child must be 3 1/2 years on the first day of class. To enter the 4 -5 year old class, a child must be 4 years on the first day of class. Your child must be potty trained and not wearing diapers. Child's original Birth Certificate (to be verified by frontline staff), a Participant Profile and Child Info form must be turned in on or prior to first day of class.
