Learn and Play is offered each spring for children who have turned 3 years old before September 1 and who plan to attend Learning Readiness in the fall.

The children receive 24 hours of service, with the opportunity to come to school to meet the teacher, see the room, and participate in quality early childhood lessons with their peers. This is a great experience and helps children prepare for the transition to the Learning Readiness Preschool Program, which they can participate in the year before Kindergarten. The program is free, but we invite donations of supplies. Students are asked to bring their own snack and a backpack.

Sorry but bus transportation is not provided.

2017 Spring class will take place on the following dates: May 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25, and the 30.  Class time will be 8:30 - 11:30 AM.     The Sneak-a-Peek is scheduled for Monday, May 1, 9:00 - 11:00 AM.

We have a few more openings for this spring - if you need a registration form, please contact Deb Spencer at 218-258-8991 ext 2124 or .    The information needed is your name, address/city/zip and a phone number.

*** SPECIAL NOTE: The State of Minnesota requires that all children participating in ECFE and/or Learning/School Readiness programs, and Learn and Play Classes need to be up to date on all immunizations in order to attend. Please double check with your physician that your child is up to date on immunizations so there are no missed school days.
