for New and Nearly 2s

Fall 2019 Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00-10:30am   

Fall 2019 Registration is open now! The fall semester starts on September 9, 2019 and ends on January 31, 2020. Request information by emailing Jennifer Moore at  and click here to schedule a tour.

Programs Assistant Director/On My Own instructor Jennifer Moore, Denise LeDonne, Shivani Urban, and Handprints teacher Cindy Schaffer, team up for Friends2gether, a gentle separation class that incorporates free play at the learning centers in a cheerful classroom and time in our joyful art studio for children to create, make beautiful art, and explore.
The process of separation from your child’s parent or caregiver will be as gradual as he or she needs, with the ultimate hope that about halfway through the term, all children will feel safe and comfortable enough to be dropped off. Friends2gether will have a small class size of just eight children, so we can provide the security and nurturing your little one needs.
