Toddler Program

The Toddler Program is a play-based program that focuses on social-emotional development and is both a transition to a school setting and a means to further the healthy separation between parent and child. Full-day and half-day options are available.

Children must be two years old before July 1, 2020 to enter our 2020-2021 Toddler Program.

EC1 & EC2 Programs

The EC1 and EC2 Programs include indoor and outdoor activities organized around learning centers. Large and small group activities include storytime, movement, music and art, science, and library. Full-day and half-day options with before and after school daycare are available.

Children must be three years old before July 1, 2020 to enter our 2020-2021 EC1 Program.

We do not accept applications for the EC2 Program because we do not increase the class size from the previous year's EC1 Program and rarely have openings. Kindergarten is a wonderful entry point for new families to attend The Center, and applications will be available from July 10 to December 1, 2019 for Kindergarten 2020-2021.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten is a full day Elementary program. In Kindergarten, teachers introduce academic subjects including language arts, math, and social studies. In addition, Kindergartners go to teacher specialists for music, art, physical education, science, and library.

Children must be 5 years old before July 1, 2020 to enter our 2020-2021 Kindergarten Program.

Kindergarten Screening
In November, applicant families receive a Preschool Evaluation Form to be filled out by their child’s preschool. All students applying to Kindergarten will be invited to attend a Kindergarten Screening in December or January. Children spend time playing, listening to a story, and doing some table activities while parents learn more about the Kindergarten program.

Elementary

Throughout the elementary grades at The Center, we strive to provide a wide variety of experiences and approaches to learning. Our focus is on addressing different learning styles and developing collaborative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Openings in first through sixth grade occur only through attrition of current students. Elementary School applicants are invited to spend a day at CEE between November and mid-March. Parent interviews are usually held on the day that the child visits. A Teacher Recommendation Form and Release of Records from the child’s current school are also required.
