Extended Day

Each and every child is a unique individual with his/her own talents and abilities. Children are born learners, with a strong sense of curiosity, and their own brand of imagination and creativity. Derry Preschool offers a variety of enrichment programs to further enhance your child’s emotional and cognitive growth while preparing them for the lifelong adventure of learning.

 

KickStart 

This unique program was developed by Derry Preschool teachers who are certified in Elementary Education and have experience in Special Education.  KickStart offers individually age-based instruction on pre-reading/prewriting skills including phonemic awareness, letter knowledge, and other early literacy components.

This program which is offered Monday-Thursday from 12:45 to 3:15 pm is a center-oriented creative curriculum.  KickStart is a great option for parents of children who qualify for the 3yo, 4yo, or 5yo classes, who need a little extra time in the afternoons but can still have their child in a program designed for fun and learning!

For more detailed information on the Kickstart Program, please e-mail us at derrypreschool@gmail.com.

*For the upcoming 2021-2022 school year KickStart will be offered on Monday-Thursday from 12:45-3:15pm

Creative Enrichment

We offer a variety of enrichment activities for children ages 3 to 5 throughout the year including Zumba Kids, Mini Doodlers Art Class, KIMA and Bitty Ballet. Information about these activities will be advertised during the school year!

Lunch Bunch ~ Daily

Every day from 11:30 to 12:45 pm, Derry Preschool offers Lunch Bunch for children who qualify for the 3yo, 4yo, and 5yo classes.
