Erdman Preschool offers 2, 3 and 4-day classes for Young Threes, Threes, Older Threes, Fours and Fives, as well as Enrichment and Extended Day Programs.
Our ratio of seven children to one teacher for four year olds, and six to one for threes permits us to give a great deal of individual attention to each child and encourage his or her individual work.
Our classrooms are chosen to support the children: The Threes room is designed with their size in mind to be cozy, reassuring and accessible. The Fours rooms are larger with more opportunities for varied, revolving activities and learning centers.
Classes may be added as enrollment demands. We are always available to discuss your questions and concerns about registration and class placement.
