3-5 Year Olds

All children enrolling in our preschool 3-5 year old program must turn 3 years old by December 1st of the year they enroll. The classes are registered with New York State Non-public Pre-K and Kindergarten. The 3-5 year olds attend class according to the following schedule:

  Morning Session Afternoon Session Full Day
Crane Road 8:45 – 11:30 12:30 – 3:15 8:45 – 3:15

  Each classroom follows a daily routine which involves the following activities:

Full day classes will have more than one block of work time and more outdoor play time, generally about 1/2 hour in the morning and 1/2 hour in the afternoon. Early drop off and late pick up are available.  Available hours vary by site.  


Children in full day classes bring their lunch from home.  Lunches are kept in the refrigerator and microwaves are available for warming food at lunch time if needed. All full-day children must rest for one hour during the middle of the day. In keeping with our philosophy of maintaining a comfortable, homelike atmosphere, our teaching staff supervises the lunch and rest time Monday – Friday. Please check with the individual location for their Friday lunch routine.
