OPENINGS AT CHERRY
If you are interested in applying for the 2021-22 school year, we still have scattered openings in several of our classes. Our 2AM and 3AM Bridge to Three’s classes are currently full. However, we encourage families to fill out an application to be placed on the waitlist which does not require a registration fee.
NEW COLLABORATION WITH CREATIVE KIDS CORNER
Cherry Preschool is excited to be the site for MUSIC & MORE AFTERNOONS with Creative Kids Corner. This class is open to children ages 4 to 6. Whether your child is enrolled in a Cherry program or not, this is an affordable, flexible, and reliable option for families’ busy schedules.
A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
We are so excited for the 2021-22 school year! Our Executive Director, Debbie Boileve, would like to welcome you to the Cherry community and share some tips to help you prepare for a great start to school.
We celebrate diversity
We are a diverse school community in which children learn to value and respect themselves and others. Children should be proud of themselves and their heritage, challenge bias or unfairness when they encounter it, and feel at home in our diverse world.
We are inclusive
All of the students at Cherry benefit from having the opportunity to learn together and from one another regardless of ability. Cherry’s Inclusion Program is available to children who require additional support in the classroom from their own dedicated inclusion aid.
We are a community
We are a dedicated group of educators and parents working together to create a caring community within our classrooms and throughout our preschool. Our families are committed to donating their time, energy, and talent toward making Cherry Preschool a special place for all.
We learn through play
Cherry teachers plan open-ended, play-based activities and experiences to stimulate and challenge children to progress developmentally. Teachers provide children opportunities to interact with materials and construct knowledge about their world.
The Cherry Blog
The Cherry Blog aims to provide parents with information related to our early childhood education programs. Topics include child development, play-based learning, STEM activities for preschoolers, diverse books for preschoolers, teaching children with developmental delays, kindergarten readiness skills and inclusion, as well as other areas of interest to our parents and community.
