PROGRAMS

Pre k-K

Our Pre k-K programs are designed a little differently then our other OE programs. Pre-school age children will rotate through four 20 minute sessions with a 30 minute break between the second and third sessions.  A simple snack will be provided during the break. Kindergarteners can choose to follow this schedule as well or they can choose to rotate through five 20 minute sessions consecutively.
