A warm nurturing atmosphere is the key to the success of the Tot Time Program. Our goal is for your child to develop independence and a positive self-concept. Children participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities including creative art experiences, singing and rhythm activities, stories, finger plays, role playing and body movement, free play, and activities related to everyday math and science discovery. This program is continuous beginning in September and ending in May.
Three-year-old classes have a maximum of 20 children and four-year-old classes have a maximum of 25 children.
A child must be 3 or 4 years old on or before September 1 each year. All children must be toilet trained and able to take care of their own bathroom needs.
