As a parent and as a teacher, I was careful about the child development program in which I would enroll my twins. Playschool was a very good choice. Thank you to our teacher, the board, and the staff for a well-organized, considerate, and enjoyable learning experience.
Greendale Playschool Parent
Pre-3 Preschool Program
This unique class offers a relaxed introduction to a school setting for children who turn three between September 1st and November 30th of the academic school year. Our emphasis is on learning through play and socialization skills. Our maximum class size is eight children. To maintain the excellent child-to-adult ratio we pride ourselves on, parents or guardians of enrolled children are required to act as a parent helper three times a year. Students enrolled in this program meet once a week. Children must be able to use the bathroom independently.
This class is proposed to run from 9 - 11 am on Friday mornings for the 2020-2021 school year. There will be eight openings.
