Staggered Entry
A staggered entry is a process whereby only half of the class attends one of the days that week and the other half the other day. In the summer time, you will receive an email indicating the day your child will begin preschool. We will begin classes with all students attending the following week. For the first day of preschool, we ask that each child be accompanied by one parent / guardian so that they can discover preschool with the comfort of parental support.
