The youngers program sessions are designed around hands-on learning experiences, including indoor/outdoor free-play time, during which children may engage themselves in the art room, in the dramatic play area, with manipulatives, or in the sand box. The day’s routine also includes small-group time for conversations and stories and music time. During the 2020-2021 school year, the Youngers class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, the Youngers class will meet three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
A child must be 3 years old by September 1 to be admitted into the Youngers class. Parents work at school 6 times during the school year.
