Enrollment Options for Preschool 3-year-old

Preschool 3-year-old students attend three, four, or five days a week. Parents select which days of the week their child will be attending when fewer than 5 days a week. The school can provide a recommendation for which days are advisable. The selection of days from week to week remains constant, as teachers plan activities carefully based on specific attendance.

Families should also note that the Preschool 3-year-old curriculum includes Special Area classes (Art, Music, Movement, Library, and Spanish) each week. Please note that three-day children will participate in the special area classes based on days attending and, thus, should expect that not all specials will be available to them.

Teachers work very hard to plan field trips and special class events on days when all children attend. If this is not possible, parents should know that all children are included for those events. Advance notice will be given to parents for special events, so arrangements can be made, if necessary, for those who attend three days per week.

Additional Enrollment Options

In order to best serve our parents and students’ lifestyles, Brown School has created Special Programs to enhance each student’s day. Special Programs include Extended Day Programs and Clubs, Enrichment, and Plus. Brown School also has a Summer Program available to students, siblings and members of the community.

Extended Day

To meet the needs of working parents, we offer both morning and afternoon extended day programs for an additional fee.

  • Morning Program 7:00 – 8:00 AM
  • Short PM Program 2:55 – 4:15 PM
  • Full PM Program 2:55 – 6:00 PM

Plus

Plus was created to give working parents an option for a seamless school year. While it was originally created for our youngest learners in Preschool, it has expanded to all Brown School students. The program provides supervision from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM on some of the days when there is no school such as recesses, holidays, professional development days, and some summer vacation days.

Enrichment

The popular after school enrichment program gives students the opportunity to explore a variety of interests outside of the regular school day for either a half-year or full-year. Students enrolled in an enrichment class meet once a week for the duration of the program. Brochures are sent home at the beginning of the school year providing class choices, days and times. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to returning students in the musical instruction programs.

Classes, some of which are parent led, vary from year to year and have included Music (violin, guitar, piano, drums, brass), Lego League, Lego League Jr., and Math Olympiad.

Clubs

Brown School offers students the opportunity to participate in after-school clubs throughout the year. Generally, each club meets once per week between 3:00 and 5:00 PM for 45 to 60 minutes and a club lasts for a period of about five weeks. Several club periods are offered throughout the year, and information is available from the Director of Special Programs before each session. Enrollment in all clubs is limited, and clubs are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Recent offerings have included activities such as cooking, arts, macrame, book club, Dungeons and Dragons, art, chess, yoga, dance, STEM, and robotics.

Summer Program

Brown School offers a ten-week summer camp, which is open to both Brown School families, as well as the public, for children ages 3-14. The program is open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Mondays through Fridays, excluding July 4th. The program is flexible, meaning you can enroll for a day, a week, or for the entire summer! Lunch and two snacks are included. There are part-time and full-time options.

Daily activities run in block intervals, and include activities such as arts and crafts, sports, music, summer splash, Legos, bike riding, dance, and fun Friday!

In addition to the daily program, specialty camps are also provided and may include such themes as robotics, coding and programming, cooking, painting, dance, chess, reading comprehension and math.

About Brown School

The Brown School community is strong and supportive, and we believe that our students deserve not only an academic education but also a place to enjoy traditions and experiences that they cherish for years to come. Our faculty and administration are committed to mindfully educating each individual student in a nurturing and collaborative environment.

Our School Day

Our school song states that “Brown School is joy, friendship, and laughter. Memories dear, now and long after. Working each day, growing together. Brown School is learning and love.” Even though we have modernized our teaching and offerings, these words hold true even decades after they were written.

Beyond the School Day

Brown School students of all ages have a plethora of options available after the school day is over. Whether it is partaking in the after school or Plus programs that offer a purposeful place for students while parents are working, exploring new interests or established hobbies, or getting together beyond the walls of our school, our Brown School community is strong.

Prospective Parents
