Pre-K Classes (4-5 Year Olds)

General Description

Our Pre-Kindergarten classes meet the growing needs of students preparing for Kindergarten.   Any student that is 4 years of age by September 1st can enroll in any of our Pre-K classes.  If a child is in a lot of activities a 3-day or 4-day may be enough (we do not believe in over booking children), but the choice is up to the parents.  The biggest difference in the classes is the number of days they attend.  Since the 5-day students are at school 5-days a week they have more exposure to activities, but the goals for all three classes is very similar.  All of the classes will prepare a child to enter Kindergarten the following year.  All classes have morning and afternoon options.  The morning program will run from 8:30am-11:30am and the afternoon program will run 12:30pm-3:30pm.  The 3-day is limited to 16, 4-day Pre-K classes are limited to 18 children and the 5-day is limited to 20.  The cost of our 3-day program for the 2015-2016 school year is $2,100.00 per year or $210.00 per month, September through June.  The cost of our 4-day program is $2,700.00 per year or $270.00 per month, September through June.  The cost of our 5-day program is $2,950.00 per year or $295.00 September through June.

Young Learners has been such a positive experience for not only my children but for my family as a whole. We have grown to be a part of this extended family of fellow students, parents, teachers and care givers that meet daily to create a positive learning experience for our kids. The staff is incredible in their passion for learning and teaching and their compassion for young children. When I first enrolled my oldest son into the transition class I was concerned about leaving him as he had always been with me. My concerns quickly faded as I saw how much his teachers cared for him, how loving and kind they treated him and how much he enjoyed the school atmosphere where he could play and have fun while learning at the same time. This philosophy of learning through play was really important to me because I wanted him to enjoy his peers as a three year old while learning school routines, the ABC’s, social norms and age appropriate academia. I was so impressed with my first year at Young Learners that I enrolled my son in the four’s program the following year and Kindergarten last year while introducing my other son into the program through their transition class. I can’t say enough about how wonderful the school has been and how well it has prepared my children for success in elementary school. I look forward to being a part of this “extended family” for years to come as my daughter grows and begins her preschool experience.
