Ready, Set, Go

Activities & Focus

This program is designed to introduce your child (ages 2-3) to the daily and weekly routine of preschool.  Each week will include curriculum that is based on our Parker's Playtime Preschool program, which focuses on children's overall developmental needs by providing a stimulating environment through hands-on experiences and play.  Activities are adapted to meet the needs of this age group.
