Minnow Pond is small, with a licensing capacity of 38 children per day. This allows close relationships between children and staff, similar to those found in home settings.
Minnow Pond’s staff-to-child ratio exceeds the minimum requirements set by licensing, ensuring each child maximum attention.
The Minnow Pond teachers are dedicated professionals. Their expertise and education create a top notch preschool program.
Minnow Pond offers parents a host of options. The preschool program runs from 9 am to 11:30 am. Parents may enroll their children in this program any 2, 3, 4 or 5 days of the week.
For those who need care as well as instruction for their children, Minnow Pond offers a half-day and full day program that is built around the preschool program. Parents may also choose the 2,3,4, or 5-day option for these programs.
