Parents

What is the cost of each six week session?
Registration costs can vary for the six-week program.  Prices are dependent on partnership agreements, school contracts, number of students and programming commitments.

Take home medical equipment varies by course.  See the individual programs for details.

Do you divide the classes by age?

We follow the Mixed-Aged Grouping teaching philosophy.  Mixed-Aged Grouping allows the teacher to focus on teaching each child according to his or her own strengths, unlike in same-grade classrooms that often expect all children to learn at the same pace.  The spirit of cooperation and caring in this environment makes it possible for children to help each other as individuals, not see each other as competitors and often allows the older children to have the opportunity to serve as mentors and to take leadership roles.

What courses are best suited for Pre K students?

We have specific courses, Little Medical School 1 PREK and we have Little Veterinary School for PREK, that are both focused on lessons and techniques for 4-5 year old students.

No! Any course can be attended at any time.
