Our popular Pre School Bound series addresses your child’s social, cognitive, and emotional preschool readiness. We’ll encourage your child’s love of learning as they navigate preschool type activities. Your teachers will help your child overcome separation anxiety through a personal plan of gentle separation. The first half of the term, parents will remain with their child while slowly disengaging from classroom activities. The second half of the term, parents will “Drop-off” their child with the instructors for approximately 1 hour. Parents who have completed this class have remarked that Pre School Bound made the transition to preschool so much easier!
