Ready to Learn!

Precess Kids is a program for children ages 2.5 - 4 years to explore and discover through hands-on, sensory rich, play-based experiences



Precess Kids is a drop-off program for children ages 2.5-4yrs to explore and discover through hands-on, sensory rich, play-based experiences. Recess is a warm and welcoming home base for learning through play, stories, songs, and art. Paired with a state-of-the-art playspace, Precess Kids is all about creating a unique learning environment that sparks physical growth and discovery.

The fundamental goal of our program is to provide a foundation for a love of learning and enrich your child's social and emotional skills. 


Program Details

PreCess Kids begins preparing children for learning in a small nurturing environment (limited to 6 students a day). We offer a perfect balance of free play, process-based activity, and socialization. 

Each morning begins with exploration in Recess' expansive play space. Children have an opportunity to climb, slide, swing, and run or they may get started more slowly with trains, reading and puzzles.  This open ended time is a great way to transition from home to "school."  Many families use Precess to ease into a drop-off program in a familiar & fun setting.  The child-directed nature of the beginning of the day can really help to make that a success!

As each morning progresses, we have circle time, snack and free choice activities. Children enjoy songs, classmate collaboration, and even potty practice (for those who are not working on it), which are all incorporated into each day.  Throughout the week, daily enrichment activities vary from Cooking, to Tumbling, to Art and Gardening.  We look forward to engaging your child in these fun and varied experiences and new learning!
