We provide an integrated approach to education to advance the intellectual, emotional, physical, and social development of three, four and five year olds. This campus offers an educational program that focuses on the individual student and ensures the class meets and excels in all content areas of the New York State Pre-Kindergarten learning standards.
Our Early Childhood program has three classrooms for Pre-K 3 and three classrooms for Pre-K 4. School begins at 8:30 a.m. and dismissal is between 5:15 to 6:00pm. Each class has a head teacher, assistant teacher, teacher aide and volunteer foster grandparent aide. The adult to child ratio in each class is 1:6.
