Creative Beginnings a time for your child – together with a parent or caregiver – to explore the richness of our Early Childhood School program through art, creative play, music, and storytelling. Parents and children will facilitate exploration and socialization alongside longtime Early Childhood School teacher Laura Selby. As your children develop social, emotional, and cognitive skills in this group setting, parents and caregivers also develop a community of new friends and enter the J family. Open exploration is followed by group time over refreshments; parents and teacher take turns supplying a small snack. If you have questions about this class, please contact Laura Selby.
New families that desire to be placed on a wait list must complete a wait list form and a guided school tour. If a space becomes available, the family will be notified by phone and given five (5) business days to respond and register for the program before the space is offered to the next person on the wait list. If a family chooses to decline a space in the program, that family will be moved to the bottom of the wait list.
We do not accept wait lists for programs for which we have not yet opened registration.
