We offer a 3-day-a-week learning environment at the Olive Branch Campus on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from mid-August through mid-May. The holiday schedule will follow the Desoto County School calendar. Program hours are 9 am-2 pm.

What to expect

Your child will be engaged in developmentally appropriate activities designed to enhance social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive growth. In small classes, children are given a range of hands-on play-based learning opportunities which we hope will foster and develop a love for learning.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What should my child bring?

    Each child will be required to bring a change of clothes, diapers (if required), nap mat, daily snack, lunch, and an enclosed water bottle.

  • Does my child need to be potty trained to attend?

    We ask that all 4-year-olds are fully potty trained prior to beginning the program in August. All 3 year-olds must be working on potty training and be fully potty trained when they return after Christmas break. We ask that all children who are not fully potty trained wear pulls up.

  • What should my child wear?

    We suggest that children wear comfortable, play clothes. They will be doing crafts which are sometimes messy and will play outside for recess whenever possible. We will have special events throughout the year where children will get the opportunity to wear pajamas and other fun clothes to school.
