Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Checking Out Schools, part 2

If you are interested in a premier preschool program for your 3 - 5 year old, then check out Berry College Child Development Center.  The school is housed in the log cabin area on the Berry campus, which are known as cottages.  There is a fabulous playground, and the ever present deer population roaming outside on the grounds.

Berry has PreK3 and PreK4 classes which are open to the public. Many families put their child on the waiting list as early as birth, though there are spaces available for Fall 2012! One of the pre-requisites before enrolling in the CDC is that your child is potty trained.  They boast that tuition is lower than other private schools, and meals are included in your fees.  Yoga and Spanish are also included in the tuition. For additional fees your child can participate in Kindermusik ABC Music and Me classes, and computer skills.  All of these extras are taught on site!

One of the most outstanding components at the CDC is the adult:child ratio of 1:5.  This is because the center has energetic college students that work in the classroom with the certified teachers.

You can learn more about Berry's Child Development Center here.   Open House will be held on February 24 from 8:30 - noon and 4 - 6 pm.
