Mixed age groupings

In addition to the single age groupings, we offer extended day of week options for mixed age groupings as follows:

3 year olds – Tuesday/Thursday/Friday (combined with 4s) from 9-11:30AM, $180/month

3/4 year olds – Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday from 9-11:30AM, $220/month

3/4 year olds – Monday – Friday (5 days) from 9-11:30AM, $265/month

Multi-age grouping in nursery school can have many advantages. Some of the benefits may include: increased opportunities for skill development, motivation for younger children, opportunities for leadership practice, and an increased sense of security & trust in the classroom. In short, both older and younger children can thrive in this atmosphere. When younger children have the opportunity to work with their older peers in a relaxed and safe environment, increased trust and collaboration can result, which can then lead to endless opportunities for learning.

*In our 3, 4, and mixed age classes, parents who choose to volunteer as “helper” in their child’s classes will receive a slight tuition discount after reaching a certain number of classes. Typically parents help once or twice a month. Contact The Executive Board at cliftonparknurseryschool@gmail.com for more information! 


THE CO-OP EXPERIENCE


A cooperative program is unique and provides our children with the most enriching nursery school experience. The cooperative nature of the school means our parents and caregivers are much more involved in their child’s nursery school experience. Families assist in caring for the school on two assigned weeks a year and in fundraising efforts throughout the year.
