BRIDGE PROGRAM

2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR 

Registration for the Bridge Program 2020-2021 will begin in January 2020! 

The Bridge Program is a partner program between the Sutton Place Family Center and Kaplan Nursery School. Designed for children who do not meet the cut-off for the Two’s at KNS, the program is for children turning two from November 1, 2020 through February 14, 2021.

The first half of the school year, children will attend the program twice a week (T/TH) for 90 minutes (9:15-10:45am) with a caregiver. Come February, the class will extend to 2 hours (9:15-11:15am). Children are expected to be accompanied by a parent/caregiver from September – December. Starting in January, children can begin to separate from their caregivers based on readiness.

The Bridge Program will follow the Nursery School calendar. There will be no make-ups for missed classes. 

The program will be led by two experienced teachers and will include: activity time, snack time, circle time, and gross motor play. Children will engage in parallel play, building a foundation for how to be part of a group setting.

Families enrolled in this program will receive the opportunity to opt into Early Decision during the Kaplan Nursery School admissions process for the 2021-2022 school year. Families that wish to tour the school prior to entering the Bridge Program will not be required to tour again during the Admissions Season, unless they so choose.
