Wayzata Public Schools summer preschool program accepting registrants

Did you know Wayzata Schools’ Family Learning Center offers a summer preschool? Barefoot in the Grass is a great way to create just the right amount of routine for your family without over-scheduling, and a valuable experience for children transitioning into kindergarten this fall.

Give your kids a chance to explore nature, art, science, music, movement, games and stories--indoors and outdoors. Your child will learn through play, run through sprinklers and make new friends!

Classes are either four or eight weeks in length and run 9-11:30 a.m. for 2-year-olds and 8:45-11:45 a.m. for 3- to 5-year olds. Parents may choose a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday class. To be eligible, children must be 2- to 5-years-old as of September 1, 2010, and have not yet started kindergarten. Session I is June 6-30 and Session II is July 11 to August 4.

Parents can also register children ages 18-months to 5 years for one morning (8:45-11:45 a.m.) or afternoon (noon-2:30 p.m.) per week of BLOCK Time, the center’s high quality child care option. BLOCK Time is prepaid for a full session of four weeks, the same dates as Barefoot in the Grass.

Limited financial assistance is available for qualifying families. Registration and additional information is online at (Select Birth to 5.) Registration forms are also available at the Family Learning Center at 305 Vicksburg Lane North, in Plymouth. For more information, call 763-745-5290.
