A young toddler (18-36 months by sept 1st) pre-academic preschool drop-off class. The Little Red Toddler Play School is an alternative for a parent or caregiver who is home with their child but also wants to give their child a preschool experience on a part-time basis. Created based on the values of exploration, experimentation and material-based learning guided by the individual developmental needs of young toddlers. Through play, art, literature, science, music, and movement the children will not only be learning pre-academic and social skills, but will also develop a sense of self-expression, self-possession, and joy in learning. Anna believes that play is the invaluable work of children and holds this at the core of the curriculum. She also believes that a positive first school experience is vital in setting up a lifelong love of education and learning.
Toddler Play School runs for the 2019-2020 school year. A $200 Registration fee is required to secure your spot. Refundable until May 1st. Small Class size of 5-6 kids, 1 teacher and 1 assistant. $425/month

CLASSES FULL - waitlist only
Spanish with Ms. Ericka is fun! Studies continue to show that, in order to achieve the fluency level of a native speaker, one must start to learn a new language by the age of 10. Evidence indicates it becomes harder to learn a second/third language as we get older, therefore the early learning years are a critical time for your child. This is the perfect time to make learning and speaking multiple languages fun and easier. Ms. Ericka teaches her classes at The Little Red with full immersion in Spanish, where students will be encouraged to speak and repeat, as they build their conversational skills and everyday life vocabulary. Using child friendly activities like songs, games, arts and crafts, read-alouds, and much more, your child will learn how to speak Spanish with accuracy.
