Center-Based classrooms

Centers provide children with the opportunity to make choices, learn to socialize, function in smaller and larger group settings, and become independent and confident learners.

 

   2's Program

A flexibly structured schedule to meet each child’s needs

The main goal of the 2’s program is socialization as well as a successful transition from home to school. The curriculum includes exposure to basic preschool concepts learned through play and hands-on experiences. A daily routine allows the children to feel comfortable with the flow the of the day. Within this structure is ample time to choose from various centers for play and interaction with peers. 

 

Must be 2 years old by December 1st.

Preschool 3’s and 4’s Program

 
Developmentally appropriate
hands-on activities aimed at preparing children for the Kindergarten experience

The 3's and 4's program is an age-appropriate combination of academic, social and emotional goals. We embrace a whole-child philosophy where both individual and group activities are utilized to allow for optimal acquisition of skills. We focus on learning to understand and express feelings and how to be "mindful", an essential lifelong skill.

 

Must be 3 or 4 years old by December 1st, respectively. 

voices of our parents

The program has exceeded our expectations. It is wonderful! The teachers are exceptionally warm and caring. They put the children first but the parents are always welcome.

This is a first rate -- top-of-the-line program. I am proud to say my son attends Katonah Playcare! Thank you to all that have made it so excellent.

This is a very professionally run program but done with a very warm and caring (and friendly) human element. I wouldn't want my children any other place!
