LEAP (Literacy Enrichment at Preschool)


 LEAP!

“Literacy Enrichment At Preschool”

Preschool is not a one-size-fits-all experience, and Small Wonders Preschool is designed with that in mind. We offer a variety of classes, schedules, and enrichment offerings so that you can create a fully customized program that fits the needs of your child and family’s schedule.

Small Wonders Afternoon Enrichment classes

Enrichment Classes meet 11:30-3:00 pm. Lunch time is part of the schedule. Students can bring a peanut free lunch from home or have a school provided lunch (available for an additional cost).

Create a customized schedule for YOUR child! Sign up for Small Wonders Preschool Afternoon Enrichment Classes in conjunction with your morning preschool class to create a full-day experience for your child.  Students must be independently toilet trained ages 3 to 6.
