Robins

(3- and 4-year-olds)

There are three scheduling options for the Robins class:  
8:45 PM to 1:00 PM Tuesday/Thursday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday, or Monday through Friday.
The Robins class is designed to meet the needs of older three-year-olds and younger four-year-olds. There is a maximum of 20 children and three teachers in this class. The  teacher to child ratio is better than 1:7.  The CT State required ratio is 1:10.

Benefits of the class structure:

  • Flexible scheduling options are available.
  • The teachers use a targeted approach to meeting the needs of the children in this age group by continually observing and assessing the children.
  • The class structure allows children to interact with peers at the same social and emotional level.
  • Children in this age group are given more autonomy and gain independence and self-care skills more quickly than younger three-year-olds.

Pathway:

  • Children in the Robins class who turn four on or before December 31st may go to kindergarten or to the Falcons (Fives) class for the following school year.
  • Children who turn four on or later than January 1st may go to the Woodpeckers for the following school year.

Optional:

Children may also attend our Preschool After School Enrichment Program (PASEP) until 3:00 PM or 6:00 PM for an additional fee.
