classes & Tuition
LRW will offer our regular half day program of in-person classes for the 2021-22 school year as well as give families an option to remain remote until they are comfortable returning to in-person classes. Please scroll down to the 'Meet our Classes' section to learn more about each of our classes.
Classes for the 2020-2021 School Year:
Little Red Wagon Preschool is following a phased approach in our class offerings. We will begin the 2020/21 school year virtually during Phase 2 of King County’s reopening and tuition will be half our regular monthly rates during this phase.
During Phase 2 programming at LRW, all classes will offer the following components of at-home and limited online activities. Each class offering will be unique to account for the different ages, stages, and needs of the group. You may request a more detailed plan for each class when you contact us.
Start of School Year Materials Each child will receive a bag to have at home with some basic materials we would use at school.
Weekly Materials Once a week, each class will have a safely conducted materials pick-up day. We’ll use this time for a quick family check-in and for you to collect classroom materials that will be used for the following week’s activities.
A Sample of Weekly Activities Each week, classes will have new at-home activities such as art projects, fine motor skill-building projects, social emotional lessons, music or movement activities, early math ideas, and more. Teachers will also provide recorded videos during the week which may compliment the materials sent home for the week or provide children with opportunities to play games, try new skills, and delve into new areas of exploration. Our hope is children can try new activities, skills, and discoveries and/or take the ideas in their own directions after watching the videos.
Weekly Virtual Classroom Meetings Each class will have at least one live meeting per week, focusing on some of the classroom routines, songs, book read-alouds, and games. Mainly, we’ll use this meeting time for community building. This will look different for every class and we fully expect it to be fun chaos as we practice using this medium together.
Seesaw Community Classroom This year Little Red Wagon will use Seesaw for sharing our work! We hope to use this as a school-wide community building tool.
Family Connection Parents will also receive tools to use at home that align with social emotional concepts we teach at school as well as other resources to support you during these unprecedented times.
Phase 3 of King County's reopening
Little Red Wagon Preschool will transition into in-person class time while also maintaining our at-home/remote learning program so families can find the level of engagement that they are most comfortable with as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
Phase 4 of King County's reopening
During Phase 4, LRW will again be able to offer our regular class program and schedule.
