The Cub School provides both a structured, academically-geared preschool component to the day in the morning (8:30 am - 12:30 pm), as well as extended daycare.
Before- and After-School options are available as well with our full operating hours 7:30 am - 6:30 pm.
The Preschool Program component of the day starts at 8:30 am with Free-Play until everyone arrives at 9:00 am, but drop-off may occur as early as 8:00 am. For those families for whom Before-Care has been included in their tuition, we are open at 7:30 am.
Lunch is served at 11:30 am, and by 12:30 pm, the Preschool Program concludes. A typical morning looks like this:

At 12:30 pm, parents have the option of continuing their child's day at school or picking up. Children staying on will be offered "Quiet Time" and provided with a cot, bedding supplied from their home, soothing music and attentive teachers to help them fall asleep.
The youngest children tend to nap according to their needs and parents' instructions, while K-Prep & K children usually rest for just 30 minutes and carry on with lessons, projects and activities into the afternoon.
An "Awake" room of activities is always provided for children arriving throughout the day for Drop-Off services that DO NOT require a nap. Otherwise, nap time starts at 1:00 pm and lasts 30 minutes, or as long as a child remains sleeping.
By 2:30 - 3:00 pm, afternoon snack is served and children enjoy either indoor recess in the Rainbow Room or outdoor playground time, weather permitting. In addition to indoor recess or outdoor playground, the afternoon hours consist of arts n' crafts, book readings, free play, music appreciation and activities/games where age-appropriate.
Pick-ups begin around 3:30 pm and are staggered until 6:30 pm based on parents' needs and the option of After Care.
Parents are welcome to create their child's own schedule including days & times. Give us a call to see how we can accommodate you! 609-454-3637 Office
