2017-18 Preschool Alternative Program

To be considered for admission, please fill out the online application form. There is no application fee.

Starting this fall, Giocare will have a preschool alternative playgroup at the Play Spot. Children 18 mos.+ (born in early 2016 or in 2015/2014) are eligible to enroll. This is a great program for families who are looking for a playgroup/preschool experience without the longer day.

Daily routine will include circle time and read aloud, project time, center time, snack time, outdoor time and music and movement. Primary focus will be social/emotional and language development and our approach will be inquiry-based with an emphasis put on open-ended experiences and exploration and discovery.

The lead teacher, Jessica Clunn, holds a Masters in Education from Hunter College and holds her professional teaching certificate in both Early Childhood and Childhood Education. She has been teaching in early childhood for more than 10 years.
