Terrific Two Class

A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

Our space is designed for active and inquisitive toddlers with an environment made up of well-planned learning centers that allow for physical activity, child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching. There is a reading nook filled with a wide variety of books, a sensory table, dramatic play areas, baskets filled with dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments, and outdoor places to explore.

Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler’s growing independence, to enhance social skills, and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential and prepare for preschool and beyond.

Thrilling Three Class

Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Our preschool classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math, and scientific thought. This spacious, colorful room encourages our always eager Three’s to continue trying new things, think outside the box and let their true personalities shine!

Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare them for lifelong learning. Our student’s move to elementary school socially prepared, excited to learn, and prepared with the skills they’ll need to succeed.

 

Fantastic Four & Fab Fives

An inspiringly independent year full of hope and excitement for what is to come…

This carefully developed program is geared for our four and five year olds. Our staff has created a well balanced curriculum based on The Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework, direct involvement with current Kindergarten teachers and our experienced staff. It is our mission to continue to expose our students academically and socially to a variety of school subjects, cultures and people. We embrace each child’s individuality and recognize each of them for how special they are. Children develop at different times and without harmful pressure we encourage their development and support all of their efforts.

Additional Programs

Children enrolled at Small to Tall can arrive either 30 or 60 minutes early and utilize our “Breakfast Bunch” program. This is either a per diem convenience or can be built into your tuition and enrollment contract.

Everyday after our preschool hours (12:30pm) we offer a variety of “Enrichment Classes” for our 3, 4 & 5 year olds until 2:00pm. Some examples of these classes are Tasty Taste Buds, Where in the World?, Smart Art, Explorers Club & Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Writing Class to name a few.

Our Terrific Two’s can also stay until 2:00pm for an “Extended day”.  Most of our friends normally take a nap during this time.

Our school is open until 6:00pm to offer a full day program for those families who need this flexibility.  All of these additional programs can be used either on a per diem basis or included with your tuition and enrollment contract. We hope to be as helpful and flexible as possible.

Summer Camp   

When our school year wraps up in the beginning of June we kick off a 9 week fun filled summer camp program open to our Small to Tall students as well as the public!  We love meeting new friends for the summer and we offer similar hours as our school year to try to be as convenient for our customers!
