Reds Class

Older preschoolers continue to develop their verbal skills through cooperative play, negotiation and problem solving. Dramatic play becomes more elaborate as a result of their increased social and community experiences. As awareness of the printed word increases, children experiment with writing and reading.  At this age, thechild is working toward being an independent person. He/she easily navigates his/her school and home environments. The adult can be seen more as a facilitator than as an active participant in a particular activity or event. The 4 and 5 year-olds enjoy socializing and will be seen making more sophisticated choices and friendships. Thisis the beginning of the school-age experience.  The children go on 7-10 field trips during the school year. 

For the 2017-2018 school year:  

Children with birthdays between 10/1/12 - 9/30/13 are eligible. 

The Tuition is $3654 for the school year, broken down to $406 per month.

This class meets on Monday through Friday from 9:15 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. The teacher is Mrs. Voigt (Director and Reds) and the teacher's aide is Mrs. Hamal (Blues/Reds Aide)

The maximum enrollment for this class is 12 children. There are always two adults in the classroom, the teacher and an aide or a parent making the adult to child ration (1:6).  Parents with a child in this class co-op in the school approximately 16-18 times during the school year.  The Parent is also asked to drive 2-3 field trips.  The Blues Class and Reds classes interact during the day, and therefore the ratios for these two classes vary from 1:6 to 1:8.
