Cranberry to hold Open House November 11 for parents of preschoolers
The Cranberry Early Learning Center will showcase its newly remodeled home during an Open House from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and from 5:00 to 7:00 PM on Wednesday, November 11. The school, which currently holds morning and afternoon sessions for both 3-4 year olds and 4-5 year olds, meets in an area of the Township’s Municipal Center which was completely rebuilt last year. The school features bright, spacious classrooms, advanced security features, professionally trained educators, in-house library and gym, and dedicated child sized restrooms. Cranberry’s program was created to meet the developmental needs of young children. The Township’s program for 3-year olds is designed to be a child’s first classroom experience. Its emphasis is on language, social development, numbers and art. The Township’s Pre-K program for 4-5 year old children is focused on Kindergarten preparation. Its emphasis is on enhancing social skills, promoting development in language, math, science, art and motor skills. The class for 2½ year olds focuses on socialization, cooperative play and the introduction into the school experience. The Open House is designed to give parents a preview of the facility and to introduce its teaching staff. Each of the programs’ teachers will be available to meet with parents, answer their questions and show them the facility. Anyone considering enrolling their child in any of the programs is welcome to attend, however there is no obligation for attendees to register their children. According to program coordinator Valerie Murphy, the center follows two curricula. “Handwriting Without Tears and the Creative Curriculum for Preschool, are specifically designed for children ages 3-5. Plus, we introduce technology with the use of iPads – encouraging children to view technology as a learning tool, as well as something enjoyable.” Classes for 3-4 year olds meet for 2.5 hours a day, twice a week, from September through May. Classes for 4-5 year olds meet for 2.5 hours daily, either three or four days a week. The class for 2 ½ year olds meets for 2 hours, once a week. Monthly tuition for residents ranges from $55 to $189, depending on the section in which the child is enrolled.
