Programs: Threes, Fours & Transition

LUMP is committed to teaching the whole child, to nurturing a child's sense of self-esteem and to providing a learning environment that is rich in experiences. We know that children learn best by doing and we support active learning by providing materials that are stimulating and activities that invite cooperative play. We encourage our preschoolers to explore, create, question, try again and discover their world. Our emphasis is to give each and every child a rich and nurturing beginning to the world of learning.

We offer developmentally appropriate curriculums for three age groups:

THREES
Thursdays and Fridays, 9-11:30 a.m.
Must be three by Oct. 1

FOURS
Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9-11:30 a.m.

TRANSITION - A bridge from Preschool to Elementary
Mondays through Thursday, 8:45 - 11:30 a.m.

LUNCH BUNCH
Lunch Bunch is an optional program that extends the school day to 1 p.m. It is designed to offer more social time for children. Children bring their own lunches and time is provided for stories, songs, communication and interactive play both in the classroom and on the playground.

FUN FRIDAYS
Fridays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Must be enrolled in a Four-year-old or Transition program.
Fun Fridays is an optional program designed to enhance and expand children's creative explorations. Explore art, science and nature, children's yoga and storytelling. Some projects will be ongoing and cooperative in nature and others will promote individual self-expression.
