Extra-Curricular

Extracurricular Classes at A Great Start Preschool Classes are offered October through May!!!
 

A Great Start Preschool offers a variety of extracurricular classes each day of the week, during the break between our morning and afternoon sessions (11:20-12:00).  Parents do not have to stay. Morning students will be walked from their preschool class to their extra class, and then be picked up by their parent at 12:00 pm. (We will let you know where- for some classes it depends on the size of the class). Afternoon parents should drop their student off directly to the extra class, and after the extra class they will be walked to their afternoon preschool classroom by their instructor or one of our staff members.  You may also enroll in a class on a day that your child does not normally attend.  Children may join at any time throughout the school year, as space allows.

**Extra-Curricular Classes will begin in October!**

Please remember- all classes require a two to four weeks notice to the instructor if you decide to dis-enroll. Some classes will run from October-May, and the instructor assumes you will continue that entire time unless you withdraw by giving the required notice. Other classes will operate on a session basis (perhaps one month or several weeks- refer to forms for more details) and require re-enrollment for the next class.

If you are interested in joining an Extracurricular Class at anytime during this school year, please stop by the office to check availability.

If you have any questions, please let me know!
