Children’s Corner Preschool provides a perfect balance of creativity, learning and fun for three age levels.

For Infants

The Infant Program, for children ages six weeks to eighteen months, is offered in a bright setting full of engaging activities to stimulate infant growth. The low, four to one child/staff ratio encourages sensory development and creates an ideal environment to begin an infant’s learning. The Infant program is located at the Children’s Corner by the River Campus and runs from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

For Toddlers

The Toddler Program is available at both buildings and serves children eighteen months to three years old. Music, art, story-telling, games and outdoor play support the Tools of the Mind curriculum that promotes literacy, large and fine motor skills development, emotional growth and social skills. Class size is limited to a six to one student/teacher ratio. Sessions are offered from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuition is $875 per month.

For Preschoolers

Children’s Corner offers both full-day and half-day preschool enrollment for three and four year olds in both buildings, with class size limited to 18 students. Classrooms are designed with learning centers that focus on literacy, blocks and puzzles, science exploration, dramatic play, music, and theme-based learning. Lessons follow the Tools of the Mind curriculum, providing young children necessary learning skills. All classes are staffed by certified teachers and qualified assistants. Many teachers have graduate training in meeting the needs of children for whom English is a second language. Full-day enrollment begins at 8:45 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m.; tuition is $575 per month. Grant opportunities are available for income-eligible families. Half-day enrollment is for either a morning session (8:45 – 11:15 a.m.) or afternoon session (12:30 – 3 p.m.) and tuition is $295 per month.

Extended care is available before and after school for additional fees and a nurse is available at both locations. Security includes indoor and outdoor cameras and access to the public is restricted.

To make an appointment for a tour, or for any additional questions, call Children’s Corner by the River at 732-981-4442 or Children’s Corner by the Pond at 732-981-4438. Or visit www.ccprek.com.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.
