The Room To Grow is a mixed-age preschool for children 3 years to 5 years old who are ready to come to school. Readiness is defined as being able to ultimately separate successfully from a parent; communicate (whether verbally or not) basic needs; and to be competent with the potty at least to the degree that they recognize their body’s signals and know how to respond by using the bathroom.

All children attend four consecutive days, Monday – Thursday. This schedule nurtures and supports the bonds and friendships being built between children and between children and staff. It also provides a strong thread of continuity for the project work as every child is present to witness and contribute to development and discoveries first hand. Available extended care until 6pm plus optional Fridays.

Program Options:

3 year olds Monday through Thursday 8am-1pm
4 year olds Monday through Thursday 8am-3pm

Extended Care Options:

3 year olds Monday through Friday 1-6pm
4 year olds Monday through Friday 3-6pm

Extended care also includes arrival as early as 7:30.
