Class Descriptions

About Our classes

We have 7 regular classrooms and 1 classroom designated for our music, fitness, library, and art classes. Our students attend library, specials and recess. All day students have lunch at school (provided by the family of each all-day student) and a short rest period. We choose to offer lots of opportunity to transition in and out of the classroom so students can experience a variety of learning and teaching styles.  

Before & After School Care

Runs from 7:00-8:30 & 3:00-5:30 p.m. for ages 2 years old through 5th grade.  (Before care is only available for elementary students on Wednesday for DeKalb Central's delay morning and also on weather related delays.)  Transportation will need to be arranged by the parent through DeKalb Central Transportation.

Summer Child Care

We are excited to be offering a full time childcare option for the summer of 2021. This opportunity will provide lunch, possible  field trips, our same highly qualified staff, participation in our Fine Arts Camp, and snacks. At this time we are only offering full time registration for this program. Childcare will run from May 27th through August 6th.

 Afternoon Enrichment

This option can be added to any morning preschool class to make it a full day program. Students pack a lunch and have a rest time followed by enrichment activities. These are month long inquiry themes with hands on academic and play woven into the afternoon.

About Little Learners

Students are 2 years old. Classes meet Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday & Thursday from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Students in this class will experience social and emotional development, early language skills, early math skills, gross motor development, fine motor development and awareness of the five senses. The cost is $100/month for 2 mornings and $150/month for 3 mornings.

This class meets two or three times per week for three hours. Students in the Little Learners must be 2 years old and do not have to be potty trained, however, parents are expected to provide diapers, wipes, and diaper cream. This class is designed to aid young children in the development of social and motor skills. This development will be encouraged through exploration of art and the senses, songs, rhymes, and finger plays. The Little Learners provides students with the opportunity to become familiar with a school and classroom environment while learning how to cope with the anxiety of being separated from familiar surroundings.
