The Earthplace Nursery School is launching a new all-day program for 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds. An open house will take place on Saturday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to noon for interested families to meet the Earthplace Nursery School teachers and take a tour of the facility.

The 12-month program will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. From August through June, the children will be based in the nursery school, 10 Woodside Lane, which is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. For June, July and August, the children will participate in the Earthplace summer camp program.

The Earthplace 12-month preschool program will include animal encounters, trail walks, habitat exploration, music and singing, and gym. There will be a teacher-to-child ratio of 1:6 and the program will be open on most school holidays, closing for one week in December and one week in August. Teachers will schedule home visits to meet families before the child starts the program.
