Ready, Set, Go

2024-2025 School Year

The Ready Set Go Program is designed to introduce children, ages 2-3, to the daily and weekly routine of preschool.  Students meet for an hour and 15 minutes each day and class will focus on the children's overall developmental needs by providing a stimulating environment through hands-on experiences and play.  The daily curriculum is based on the Future Foxes Preschool, but adapted to meet the needs of this age group.  Our goal is to create a welcoming and safe space for your child to confidently grow socially and emotionally with their peers while reinforcing basic educational skills including letter, number, color and shape recognition.  Please note, students do not need to be fully potty-trained to enroll within this program; however, parents must be available for diaper changes as needed.

AGES

Ready, Set, Go is for children ages 2 and 3. Participants must be 2 by the start of class.

EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS
The Ready Set Go Program will provide a unique experience for both the students and Yorkville High School students who are interested in pursuing education as a career.  The classrooms are designed for high school students to explore and gain experience within the education field.  Through this partnership, these future educators will gain experience through both observation and by assisting within the classroom under the guidance of staff.  This unique opportunity provides a warm and engaging environment for your preschool student to learn and develop.
