*Note: Creative Kids and Extended Day are Non-Cooperative, with no cooperative obligations. Beginners is School Cooperative: parents do not volunteer as the Aide but do serve on a committee and complete a maintenance/cleaning task.
(age 2 ½ by student’s first day of school)
Beginners is a gentle introduction to school for our youngest learners. Students must be age 2 ½, and this class is also appropriate for younger 3-year-olds who may benefit from extra support in the classroom. The small class size (maximum of 8 students) facilitates a cozy learning environment where children can develop some of their first friendships. Beginners is a School Cooperative program; we have a staff aide in the classroom, so parents do not volunteer as the Parent Aide, but they do participate in committees and maintenance/cleaning obligations.
(age 3 by September 30)
Our Threes program focuses on helping children develop strong social skills and positive feelings about themselves and school. Our play-based curriculum includes lots of imaginative play, sensory exploration, art, games, songs, and more. Threes classes explore seasonal themes, as well as working on name recognition, colors, shapes, numbers 1-10, and other pre-academic skills. This is a Cooperative class, and parents take turns volunteering in the classroom as the Parent Aide.
Threes with Lunch Bunch
(age 3 by September 30)
Threes with Lunch Bunch is a new program for the 2023-2024 school year. Students will develop social skills, strengthen their problem-solving abilities, and explore their creativity in a rich play environment. This class will have a maximum of 7 students, allowing for more individual attention and relationship-building. In addition, students will enjoy the special experience of eating lunch with their friends! This new class could be a particularly good fit for older Threes who anticipate enrolling in our 4-day PreK program the following year, for independent learners who would benefit from additional enrichment, and for students who would benefit from additional support, such as for language learning. This is a Cooperative class, and parents take turns volunteering in the classroom as the Parent Aide.
(age 4 by September 30)
Our Fours curriculum prepares students for kindergarten by developing strong social skills, helping them become more independent at school, and teaching foundational pre-academic skills through play. Students will explore seasonal themes, as well as pre-academic skills, such as alphabet recognition, sequencing, counting, sorting, patterns, and fine-motor skills. This is a Cooperative class, and parents take turns volunteering in the classroom as the Parent Aide.
(age 4 ½ by September 30 or with permission)
Both Fours and PreK prepare students for kindergarten, but PreK is a good option for children who are ready for a little more. Both curricula are play-based, but PreK goes a little deeper and provides additional challenges for our older 4s. Some families whose children have late birthdays may choose to delay kindergarten and enroll in PreK after completing Fours. This is a Cooperative class, and parents take turns volunteering in the classroom as the Parent Aide.
Families have the option to extend their school day until 2:00 on select days. Students bring a packed lunch from home and enjoy lunch with their friends, followed by extra play time and less structured activities in the afternoon. Extended Day is open to all students ages 3 and up, and it is highly recommended for students who will go to kindergarten the following year. This is a Non-Cooperative program with no obligations.
CPI offers add-on Enrichment Classes in special topics. This year, our Enrichment program will be Creative Kids, a class full of sensory exploration, arts and crafts, and hands-on science experiments! This class is open to students in Threes with Lunch Bunch, Fours, and PreK. Students may also enroll only in an enrichment class, without a core (age-based) class. This is a Non-Cooperative program with no obligations.
