Early Childhood Program
Union Ridge School offers a free, half-day early childhood program for children aged three to five.
This is a nationally recognized, high quality program with experienced teachers and low student to teacher ratios designed to allow children to learn, explore, and grow in a group setting.
Numerous studies point to the importance of early education experiences in childhood development. Our high quality, half-day preschool program gives children the best possible start for future success in the primary grades.
Students enrolled have opportunity to explore numerous, high quality early learning activities in language and literacy, math, science, music and art. We encourage parents to volunteer, attend parent-child workshops, and visit classes.
The Early Childhood program always fills-up quickly. Students need to be three by the beginning of school, but parents of children with fall birthdays are encouraged to sign-up now. Numbers are limited, and spaces are filled throughout the year as openings arise.
To enroll your child in the Early Childhood Program, please stop-by the office between hours of 10:00 - 12:30 pm and 2:00- 3:00 PM. All children must complete a screening process prior to enrollment. Screening for the beginning of the next school year occurs the prior spring. Parents should place their children on the screening list as soon as possible.
Please feel free to contact the office for more information. We look forward to seeing your little ones soon!
