A program for 2-year olds
Our Little Explorers program, located at 107 Circular St., is a warm, loving environment that gives students their first introduction to school routines, peer socialization, and being away from home. It is a play-based curriculum that includes circle time, story time, music and movement, free play, teacher-led art activities, and outdoor play. Children are given an introduction to concepts such as letters, counting, shapes, colors, and patterning. Our Little Explorers take two parent-chaperoned field trips each year and also have in-class yoga instruction.
