Our Rosemont Garden campus also offers an extended day add-on option until 2 p.m. every Monday-Friday. Our Clays Mill campus offers an extended day add-on option until 2 p.m. every Monday and Friday. Children will eat lunch together and enjoy additional enrichment. Camp Co-op is also offered in the summer months with two to four sessions lasting two weeks each.
Co-op offers a class specifically for Twos/Threes. Children must be two years old on or before August 1 of the current school year to enter this class. Classes are available Monday through Friday mornings from 8:30am to 11:30am at the school’s Rosemont Garden campus. Children may choose to attend one or two mornings a week.
The Twos/Threes program provides an excellent first school experience. Children will learn through creative, hands-on, interactive experiences. Teachers will emphasize gentle and consistent limits in a safe, loving and nurturing environment. An adult/child ratio of 1:3 will be maintained.

Preschool Program (ages 3-5)
Morning or Afternoon Classes Available
Our Preschool classes are multi-age, with children ranging in age from three to five years old. Children attend class three hours per day, two to five days a week. Morning class hours are 8:30am to 11:30am at both our Rosemont Garden and Clays Mill campuses. We also offer an afternoon Preschool class from 12:15-3:15 pm at both of our campuses. Parents participate in the child’s classroom from one time a month to one time a week, according to the number of days their child attends and the number of children they have enrolled in the school. Parents also help provide snacks for the children on a rotating basis.
Parents working together with experienced staff provide an adult/child ratio of 1:4 in the Preschool classes. This allows for careful supervision and support for each child’s needs. Parents often arrange to trade child care for siblings during their work days at school. Get registration and cost information ›
Camp Co-op will offer lots of fun this summer. Children ages 3 through 8 years may attend two or four days per week. Camp meets Monday through Thursday mornings from 9 am to 12 noon at our Clays Mill campus.
The teachers plan many hands-on activities in art, nature, cooking, music, drama, and literature which can be explored at varying levels by children at different stages of development.
Each session has a theme, but campers always have time for lots of free play, for reading a book in the shade or for examining an interesting plant on our wonderful playground.
Camp Co-op provides an exceptional experience for young children. A qualified teacher and aides, along with volunteer parents provide an excellent adult/child ratio of 1:4 maximum.
Our extended day programs are offered from 11:30am to 2:00pm on specific days at each location. Our Rosemont Garden campus offers five extended days each week: Mondays-Fridays. Our Clays Mill campus offers the extended day option on Mondays and Fridays. Each child may bring a lunch and stay to enjoy additional enrichment activities and outdoor play. No parent volunteer time is required for extended days! A child who is not enrolled in the mornings may also have the option to enroll.
