Class Descriptions, Schedules and Costs

Parent-Toddler Class

For children turning two years of age by the September of entering this program, our Parent-Toddler class offers parents the opportunity to come to school with their child, making friends, and having fun together. The Parent- Toddler class can be a wonderful way to introduce children to the school experience. With a parent’s one-on-one support, children will become familiar with being a member of a group and other related social skills. Learning to take turns, being careful of others feelings, verbally expressing wants and opinions to others, and showing care for work and play materials, are the areas of focus for children in this class. Parent-Toddler meets twice weekly for one and one-half hour sessions. The daily schedule includes play time, an arts and crafts project, a morning snack and a musical circle time. Class size is limited to 12 children with parents and is taught by Susan Press

Tuesday & Thursday, 9:30 - 11:00 a.m.

Cost: $135.00/month

Threes Together

Our Threes Together program is designed for children three years of age by September of the year of enrollment, to meet and play together as they learn to feel safe and comfortable away from home. Weekly themes such as colors, shapes, animals, or numbers, provide a basis from which daily activities are structured. We offer a wide variety of play materials to begin each school day. Arts and crafts, morning snack, story time, music and outside play are added to fill up the three hour class day. Threes Together is also limited to 12 children with two teachers so that we may be available to support the children as they learn to treat one another with gentleness and respect. Threes Together is taught by Ceci Chiosso and Jenny Chan

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

$215.00/month for two days/week schedule $315.00/month for three days/ week schedule $415.00/month for four days/week schedule

Marinwood Morning School

Similar in structure to our other classes, this program is geared to offer additional stimulation to the older preschool child. Children four years of age (by September of the year joining) are treated to some delightfully creative toys and materials reserved just for this class. Activities revolve around weekly themes, as in the Threes Together class. Science, arts & crafts, music, story time, and outdoor adventures make this year of learning something special to remember. Class size for this program is 16 children with two teachers from our staff each day. Session One is taught by Susan Press, Debbie Humphrey and Kelly Wright. Session Two is taught by Annette Raisadana and Melissa Vree.

Early Pre-Kindergarten Sessions

An optional addition to our Morning School Program is the opportunity to attend two half-hour sessions a week where children are offered a more in depth focus on learning specific kindergarten readiness skills. Writing their name with the appropriate upper and lower case letters, letter recognition, counting and number recognition, rhyming, color mixing, shape identification and developing verbal skills are some of the areas covered. A phonics section in the spring helps children prepare to begin reading when they are ready and interested.

Monday,Wednesday and Friday, 9:00- 9:30 a.m. $5.00/session

We have begun registration for fall of 2014. We currently have room in both the Parent-Toddler and the Morning School classes.

All of our preschool classes begin the week of Labor Day in September and run through two weeks in June. If you are interested in joining one of our programs, please call Susan at (415)479-3123. We ask for a non-refundable $100.00 registration fee at the time of signing up for any program as well as a tuition deposit of half the monthly charge of the program chosen. The registration fee is used toward toys and materials and the tuition deposit will be credited to the last two weeks of enrollment in the program.

For the 2014-15 school year we are offering a second session of the Morning School, allowing for more children to attend this program as they prepare for kindergarten entry.
