The new School year has started! Thanks to all involved parents, teachers, board members, and of course our brave children who have to adapt to a situation of social distancing, we were able to launch the 2020/2021 QACP school year in difficult times. Most of our classes are virtual for now with our teachers Tamara, Kris, Monica and Nanci providing an exciting curriculum and personal get-together time. In addition our parent educators Jamie and Kristina are helping with much-needed support for the mental well-being of parents and caregivers.
We recently hosted our first outdoor playtime on the lawn in front of the school. Big shoutout to our teachers for organizing and making this a safe event with proper sanitization and social distancing in place. Our kids enjoyed seeing each other, baking cakes and decorating pumpkins for Halloween.
Note to parents: Although we started the school year, you are still welcome to join our classes, or just drop in for a try-out. Head to the classes page to learn about our different classes for children from infants to fives.
We are looking for a teacher for our Threes class, as well as our new enrichment class for 2019-2020.

A little more “worldly-wise”, with greater vocabulary, and sense of self, this class offers fun ways for children to work together in groups through collaborative activities (building, imaginative play, etc.). With a two out of the three days drop-off, it’s an opportunity for children to learn to be even more independent and rely on trusted adults for assistance. Longer circle time, greater emphasis on story-telling, conversations, and following instructions are emphasized. Pre-academic skills, such as counting, spelling, using scissors, among others, are introduced.
The Enrichment Class:
Schedule: Fridays from 12:45-3:45 for existing students ages 3-5. This class is an optional add-on to the existing preschool students.
Daily Routine: The Enrichment Class is led by the teacher and focuses mainly on STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math). Students are led to explore their world through play and guided inquiry. During a typical class, children experience gross motor activities, music, stories, experiments, choice time and outdoor time.
