Together TimeGrace Church School offers a Together Time program for younger children not yet old enough for preschool. Enrollment in Together Time does not constitute enrollment in the School; a separate admissions application is required to enter the Twos program.
The Together Time program is for toddlers who will be 16 to 25 months by September. For enrollment in the program beginning in late September 2017, the applicant’s birth date must fall between August 1, 2015 and May 31, 2016. Together Time meets Mondays, Wednesdays and/or Fridays from 12:30 until 2:00 pm. In 2017–18, the program will meet on either Tuesday and Thursday mornings or Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for 1½ hours. 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.
Application requests for Together Time for the 2017–18 school year will be available online beginning Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 9 am. Applications are due at the School by Friday, November 11, 2016. Notification will be sent in March 2017.
