WELCOME TO EARLY CHILDHOOD
Infants - Under 3 Years Old
Congressional School's Early Childhood program for children ages 6 weeks to 3 years is more than a day care. Our program is specifically designed to nurture the physical, emotional and cognitive needs of young children. Emphasis is given to language development, fine and gross motor skills, self-awareness, building relationships with others, exploring the environment, and preparation for our advanced academic program beginning in preschool.
When parents see their children on daily walks enjoying the beauty of nature, or when they see their children sharing and playing with others, they get a glimpse of some of the things that make our Early Childhood program special – but when they see the chemistry that grows between the children and their caregivers, they understand just how special.
Our Early Childhood Program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Early Childhood Wait Pool
Opportunities to join our program:
As an Independent school we have a traditional admission season that starts in October and ends in March. In March, we send out enrollment contracts for the upcoming fall start of school. Families that are admitted for the fall could possibly receive a call over the summer with an offer to start sooner depending on movement in our program.
Openings throughout the school year:
Early Childhood families can give their 60-day notice and withdraw from the program at any time. When we receive notice, we will go to the wait pool to fill the spot.
We have 6 infant and toddler classes. Each class has a range of 6-8 months between the youngest and oldest in the class. We have one class per age range. Our students will stay together from September to August and transition at the start of the school year in the fall.
How to start the process:
Complete our online application and we recommend sharing as much information as possible. We want to learn about your family and love it when the family photo is included.
Applicants are automatically added to the wait pool. We will reach out to families when we are able to offer admission.
How are we different:
- School Calendar
- Students remain together from September- August and transition to their next class at the end of August
- 40-Acre Campus with students between infant and 8th grade
What are we looking for:
- Families that share our core values
- Families interested in staying through 8th grade
- Families looking to be part of a vibrant family-like community
