Parents looking for an alternative to traditional preschools can stop by Kidville from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday when the East Broad Street enrichment center hosts an open house to introduce 'Kidville University.'
Children can explore the facility's open gym while parents have an opportunity to meet the teachers and learn more about the class.
According to Kidville's website, the program encourages children ages 2 and 3 to touch, try and think creatively by moving between play centers that include circle songs, storytelling, blocks, dramatic play, small and big-muscle activities and art and sensory play. Each class also includes 30 minutes of gym time.
"Focusing on the relationships between physical, social/emotional, language, cognitive, and artistic development, the KVU philosophy and approach teaches children appropriate social skills needed for school and life," the site states.
There is no application process and enrollment is currently underway. Open house attendees will receive a $100 discount on registration.
The fall semester runs the week of Sept. 9 through the week of Jan. 6. The winter 2014 semester starts the week of Jan. 13 and ends the week of April 28. To register to attend, call 908-913-0856 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Children who are between 2 and 3.3 years old in September will be eligible for the Fall 2013 semester.
