COVID Scheduling 2020-2021

MPCP is conducting the 2020-2021 school year virtually until further notice. Visit our COVID 19 Programming page for more information.

Zoom classes with Teacher Shannon will be held according to class frequency in the normal MPCP weekly schedule (see below), but with shortened duration depending on age group (30/45/60 mins). Classes will consist of stories, songs, movement, math and literacy building activities, and games. Sometimes classes may break off into smaller groups for more social/relationship building time together. In addition to virtual classes, Teacher Shannon will send out links to virtual field trips, ideas for science experiments, art projects, building challenges, movement ideas, and more activities that families can explore together offline. We will also use the Marco Polo app to share short videos of our experiences outside of Zoom class. Parent education consultation time and class meetings will be conducted virtually.

Weekly Class Schedule

*Tots will meet together, as one class, on Fridays at 9:30 until further notice.

Fall/Spring 2020-2021*

*The following information applies to MPCP’s typical, in-person class structure. Please visit our COVID 19 Programming page to understand how we plan to kick off the school year safely via virtual class offerings.

We offer several classes for children aged 1-5:

Tots (1-year-olds) can enroll for a single class each Friday morning (Tots A or Tots B), or twice-weekly afternoon classes (Tots C). Caregivers remain in all class sessions with Tots, enriching the students’ first preschool experience.

Two-year-olds attend class two mornings a week, either Monday & Wednesday (Twos A) or Tuesday & Thursday (Twos B). Caregivers alternate between staying in class and dropping off, in a schedule agreed upon early in the school year.

Three & Four-year-olds join us Monday-Thursday afternoons. Three-year-olds begin with three afternoons, Tuesday-Thursday. Our older group of four-year-olds can choose to add a fourth afternoon on Mondays. Caregivers alternate between staying in class and dropping off, in a schedule agreed upon early in the school year.
