Classes are offered every FULL day following the Rumson School Calendar starting September 11th of 2023. This program includes two hours of thoughtfully planned activities using research-based best practices for the development of skills, confidence and overall well being.

MISS JACKIE'S PREK SCHOLARS 1:00 - 2:30 DROP OFF
All PreK students are welcome. We offer the option for students coming from Deane Porter for our teachers to walk them to or from school depending on their session. Lunches can be brought or preordered from our healthy and delicious cafe. Students will engage in social playtime and K readiness enrichment work.
Students have an opportunity to play in a way that improves their cognitive, physical and social skills; which they will need for studying, working and building relationships.
Each day will focus on a different area of the arts/extracurricular whether it be music, drama, STEM, sports/dance or art. We will allow for structured-freedom which helps our children build connections in their brains to lay the groundwork for cognitive growth. We incorporate Orton Gillingham methodologies and involve students in Kindergarten readiness activities.
Students engage in age-appropriate, hands-on learning in an environment where they are encouraged to take risks and try new things with their peers. Instruction will be personalized to meet every child right where they are. We wind down every day with a read aloud, short discussion and reflection of our time together.
