Half-Day Program - General Guidelines

Our classroom is an integrated classroom where the 3, 4 and 5 year old children attend together in the same classroom. Each daily class has a maximum number of 17 students /class /day.

Kindergarten and Jr. Kindergarten numbers are limited to 7 students/class (If there is a demand for more Kindergarten or Jr. Kindergarten spots the limit may change without notice); if there are open Kindergarten spots left in September, those spots will be opened for preschool registrations.

  • For 3 year old children, 2 days per week are recommended.
  • For 4 year old children, 2-3 days per week are recommended.
  • Junior Kindergarten children will attend 4 or 5 days per week (See Junior Kindergarten for details).
  • Kindergarten children attend 5 days per week, unless an alternate path has been approved by the teacher and parents.

**Parents of preschool children who would like their child to attend extra days may submit their request with their child's registration; extra days are subject to teacher and board approval.
