A few words from Jaime Becker, Director…..

“As you know, there are numerous factors that contribute to a child’s school success. Although emphasis tends to be placed on academics, your child’s physical, emotional, and social well-being are of equal importance. I truly believe that a positive school experience can only be achieved if we work collaboratively in your child’s best interest. You are your child’s strongest advocate and, even at this early age, you have a powerful influence on your child’s learning as well as on their attitude toward learning. That said, the staff and I are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for your children. Please keep the lines of communication open and never hesitate to approach your child’s teacher or myself with any concerns. We are looking forward to a fantastic school year!”

Session Times

9:45 AM- 11:45 AM & 1:15 PM- 3:15 PM

Our Playgroup Program is designed to help 2 ½ year-old children separate and socialize in a small group setting. During their two-hour stay, children will work on an age-appropriate craft, engage in free-play, sing songs and listen to a story. They will also participate in indoor or outdoor play (weather permitting) and have snack-time. While interacting with their teachers and peers, children learn the concepts of sharing, taking turns and following simple directions. Equally important, they learn to become independent, self-confident students that enjoy attending school!

Pixie Playgroup is divided into two sessions. Session 1: September-January and Session 2: January-May. If your child is two, on or before May 31, you may enroll your child in Session 1. If your child is two, on or before September 30, you may enroll your child in Session 2. If your child does not meet the age requirement, please call the school office. Tuition is due on or before your child’s first day. When you enroll in Session 1, you are automatically enrolled in session 2.
