Just Me @ ECFE

Fall, winter, & spring sessions. Register for one or all three!

Ages 3-5 (3 years of age by the start of class)

One half day per week

This “child only” class is a great transition for families not quite ready to commit to a regular preschool schedule. Parents are required to attend a “family class” with their child once a month. This time is used to inform the parents about what their child is learning during class. Free sibling care is available during the “family class” days if registered. Children must be fully potty trained and able to take care of their own toileting needs.

Location: Meadowview Elementary
