PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
Childworks offers flexible scheduling of days for preschool. The preschool day is 2.5 hours. Add to your child’s day with Lunchworks or Enrichment afternoons (see the following information). Space is limited for the full day options.
Childworks’ Toddlerworks (parent/child program) is designed to introduce young children (12 months – 3 years old) to the preschool environment. Join your child for a fun-filled class, which runs 1-1/4 hours. Each class includes a wide variety of activities for parent and child to explore and discover. Examples are: gym play, music and movement, parachute play, art, Circletime and outdoor play. The objectives of the class are:
- Parent and child interaction;
- Socialization with other children;
- To enhance the development of motor, language, and cognitive skills;
- To familiarize children with a preschool environment; and
- To ease the transition into a preschool program.
There is a one-time new child registration fee of $10. A $8 weekly fee will be charged if a sibling (non-infant) attends class (space permitting). You may join the session at anytime with a pro-rated fee if space is available. Please call (215) 361-1234 for a trial class.
