JUMPSTART AFTERNOON PRESCHOOL

Academic Preschool Programming for 3-5 year olds:

Our afternoon preschool classroom is filled with activities to keep your child learning while they are getting ready for Kindergarten and beyond! We always offer a strong physical fitness component because we believe that joyful movement makes us all feel good and gives us the energy to learn. Our afternoon program differs from other programs because we incorporate Montessori-style 'tray-time' to help kids learn to work independently and to follow a process from start to finish- just some of the skills they will need when they go to Kindergarten...

• Monday – Friday from 1-3:30 pm
• Follows the Oneonta City School District Calendar
• Bi-weekly YMCA Swim Lessons and YMCA Gym Time included!
