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 www.wayzata.k12.mn.us/ces (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.
