Together Time and Music Time are additional programs offered by Grace Church School for younger children not yet old enough for preschool. Enrollment in these programs does not constitute enrollment in the School; a separate admissions application is required to enter the 2s program.
The Together Time program is for toddlers who will be 16 to 25 months by September 1. For enrollment in the program beginning in late September 2016, the applicant’s birth date must fall between August 1, 2014 and May 31, 2015. This 8-month program meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Fridays at 1:10 until 2:30pm. A parent or caregiver attends the program with the child. The class is a bridge from life at home to the years ahead at school. Led by an early-childhood educator, the program provides a rich group of experiences in a warm, safe environment. Children and adults explore and grow together. They enjoy free-flowing play, singing, snack and gym time. For parents and caregivers, this is a comfortable place to carry on informal discussions about child development and parenting.
If you wish to apply to the program you must attend an information session prior to submitting the application. Information for tour requests for the Together Time program will be available online in mid-October 2015.
Music Time is offered in two 45-minute classes on Tuesday mornings in the fall and again in the spring for toddlers who are 12 to 24 months old when the program begins. A parent or caregiver must attend with the child. Each class includes musical activities and stories to encourage children to wiggle, rock, stretch, tap, shake, bounce and play along. Music is a magical way to socialize, to have fun, and to encourage development of fine and gross motor skills. Led by a talented certified Music Together™ teacher, children will explore the wonderful world of music through finger-plays, movement games, sing-a-longs, percussion instruments, and stories. The program’s goal is to provide toddlers with enjoyable, hands-on musical experiences in an environment that encourages the growth of each individual child.
