The Nursery Class is for children aged 3. It is also recommended for 4 year olds who have late summer birthdays and who may wait an extra year before going to Kindergarten. This class is less structured than the Pre-K class and provides an emphasis on social skills. The class has a maximum of 15 and a minimum of 8 students. The pupil/adult ratio is 5 to 1, which includes the teacher, teacher's aide and a parent volunteer during every class.

The Nursery Class is offered 2 days a week with an optional 3rd day if your child is ready for that.
2 Day: Wednesday & Friday 9:00-11:30 or
3 Day: Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9:00-11:30.

Registration is secured with the completion of a registration form along with a $50 registration and supply fee payment, in the order it is received.
