PreK Prep program for children ages 2-4 held from 9a-12p
The Little Play Co. Pre-K Prep is a 3-hour drop off programs for 2-4 year olds. It will guide children through social and emotional development through imaginative play, art, music and story time as they gently prepare to transition into preschool, excel during and beyond.
Our program offers a curriculum that is designed and will be taught by experienced, certified Pre-K teachers. They focus on empathy, independence, cognitive, creative and social development while stimulating their natural curiosity as they explore new and exciting ideas. With small class sizes, the teacher-child ratio ensures individualized attention as the children gently transition into separation and learn to build trusting and nurturing relationships with their teachers.
Our unique space is designed to promote learning through meaningful play, exploration, and discovery. Transitioning between activities will help your child to become familiar with a structured day and have them looking forward to the next activity. Your child will gain the tools to solve problems, build relationships, and develop the fine and gross motor skills needed to succeed in preschool and beyond.

PRE-K PREP (2-4)
Through play, our students will foster their imaginations and sense of community. This program is designed to establish routine, promote socialization skills, and gently prepare children for separation. A play-based learning environment promotes independence and creative thinking. This class meets Monday thru Friday (2, 3 or 5 day option) in the morning, 9a-12pm. Your child must be 2 by September 1st and does not need to be potty trained for this program. A full year commitment is required for this program.
Our program goals are research based, developmentally appropriate, and specifically designed for the children in the Learning Series at TLPC. We understand that each child has his or her own specific needs, interests and skills. We are proud to keep our student to teacher ratio low so we can reach each child in the most personal and meaningful ways.
