The Little Cottage!

An Infant and Toddler Building is coming!

We are so very excited to announce The Learning Cottage is expanding!

The Little Cottage's opening goal date is October 27th. 2014. The Little Cottage will hold 6 Toddlers (ages 12- 23mo) and 8 Infants (6 weeks to 12 months). Our current Toddler classroom will become Jr. Preschool 1 (ages 2yrs to 2 1/2) and students will make a move to Jr. Preschool 2 when they are 2 1/2. This will better prepare our students for the Fusion classroom (ages 3 1/2 to 5 years).

Current Enrolled Toddlers will either stay in their current classroom which will become Jr. Preschool I (students whom are almost 2) or make their way with their teacher to The Little Cottage in October (students who are younger toddlers).

We are VERY excited for our staff, children and families, whom will all benefit from this expansion. Should you or someone you know be interested in an Infant space please be sure to call the school as soon as possible to place your name on the wait list. Current enrolled families will have first rights to these spaces. All others will be contacted in September to secure space.

* Please see important staff announcements below per this expansion *

We want to be sure to communicate that this is not "staff turnover" rather The Learning Cottage ensuring our staff's growth in their career in Early Childhood Education as well as with The Learning Cottage. We have carefully examined our options and with the best of intentions for the staff and children currently at The Learning Cottage, made these transition decisions. We look forward to these exciting changes in the classrooms and the school as a whole. We also look forward to your family's growth with The Learning Cottage!

As always, should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Ashley or I directly.
