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 1st. For enrollment in the program beginning in September 2015, the applicant’s birth date must fall between August 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014. This 8-month program meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Fridays at 1:10 pm for 90 minutes. A parent or caregiver must attend 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 tour requests for the Together Time program will be available online in Fall 2014.
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 early childhood educator, 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.
The Fall 2014 semester begins on September 30, 2014 and runs for 14 sessions until January 20, 2015. Class times are 9:30 am and 10:30 am on Tuesdays. As of July 2014, the fall 2014 Music Time session is fully enrolled.
Please note that there are no make-up classes for individually-missed classes, but there is a make-up date set aside in the event GCS must cancel a class. A full refund can be offered up until 30 days before the beginning class date. After that date, a refund can only be offered if we can fill the space, and then the refund would be prorated for the number of classes able to be filled.
