Wabasso Cottontail Time Information
The Wabasso Early Childhood Department offers a Cottontail Time Preschool Program, for children who will be 3-years-old by September 1, 2023.
The goal of the program is to provide young children with opportunities that support the necessary skills to progress and flourish into School Readiness. The children will learn, explore, and discover in a developmentally appropriate classroom setting while interacting with their peers and teacher. Children learn best through being actively involved in their surroundings. Activities provided will be hands-on and self-directed with-in limits. We also implement free play which has been studied and proven to be very beneficial. Free play may look like leisure time; however, the children are learning how to make decisions, use their imagination, and are learning important life skills to prepare their growing brains for adulthood. Play helps them grow socially, emotionally, and cognitively while building their self-esteem, confidence, and comfort level in a school environment.
Your child must be potty-trained to be enrolled in Cottontail Time.
Class will be held two days a week in the Early Childhood Center. If two sections are offered, classes will be:
---Monday/Thursday Section- 7:45 - 10:15am
---Tuesday/Friday Section- 7:45 - 10:15am
The cost of this class is $80.00 per month (September - May) with a $25.00 one-time registration fee. If you are unable to afford the monthly tuition cost, you may request to complete the sliding scale fee application.
Mid-day transportation is not provided and needs to be arranged by the families. A class list may be provided closer to the beginning of the school year, if you would like to arrange a carpool. We do allow preschoolers to enroll in regular morning bus routes with the help of a "bus buddy" (ex. older sibling, family friend).
