Our active, energetic Fish class makes use of three big classrooms for discovery, play, cooking, and art. Designed for children 4-turning-5-years old during the school year, this is the typical class that prepares children for Kindergarten. Many children finish the year with beginning reading, writing, math, and science skills. Our curriculum uses developmentally appropriate themes to help students
