Each year the Penn High School students enrolled in Childhood Development classes offer the two unique programs described below for preschoolers in our community.  
 

We encourage you to take advantage of PLAYSCHOOL and TODDLER TIME if you have young children in your household, and to tell your friends as well!

 


Toddler Time

Child Development students are in charge of creating intellectual, social, emotional, and physical lesson plans and games to engage toddlers and their parents or caregivers.  It is a wonderful, hands-on experience for these eager students to incorporate all that we have discussed throughout the school year.  However, it is also a great way for our community to get a full grasp on the positive things happening in our school and for parents and young children to have interaction with other parents and children.  Also, the children truly seem to enjoy receiving instruction from high school students.  Enrollment is free and is open for 1 – 3-year-old children and a caregiver. 

 

Dates and times: 

GOLD DAYS: December 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, 16


Red Group: 10:10 – 11:10 a.m. (This will fill up the fastest! Get enrollment in ASAP if you'd like this time)

Child Development students are in charge of creating intellectual, social, emotional, and physical lesson plans and games to engage 3 – 4-year-old children.  It is a wonderful, hands-on experience for these eager students to incorporate all that we have discussed throughout the school year. In addition, it is a great opportunity for young children to have interaction with fellow peers.  

 

Enrollment is for  toddlers from ages 3-4, and they must be potty-trained.  There is a one-time enrollment fee of $10 per child as we do provide snacks.

 

GOLD DAYS: April 15, 17, 21, 23, 29 and May 1, 6, 8, 14, 18

Additional notes:

It is very important that children be dropped off on time for PLAYSCHOOL and picked up on time afterwards! 


A small circle drive at the southeast corner of the high school (enter off Jefferson Road) provides PLAYSCHOOL parents convenient access to the PLAYSCHOOL entrance at Door K, where high school students are stationed to assist parents. This map will help you find your way.

 

If you do not want your child’s picture taken and possibly posted on social media for observation and education purposes (children’s names are never listed), please note that on the enrollment form. We will make sure your privacy is respected.
