Our class portion of the co-op day runs from 12:00 to 1:30 pm. Students are divided into age-grouped classes and are taught by a parent leader and assisted by a parent volunteer. Clubs begin directly after. Our entire school day is 12:00 to 3:30 PM. IHC does not allow part-time enrollment so students are expected to stay from 12:00-3:30 each Monday.
3-5 Year Olds
Interactive activities such as story-time, games, art, and music will be interspersed with plenty of free play and a rest period.
Students should be able to follow basic directions, generally control their hands and words, and express their needs to a leader. Pre-K students must have an older sibling enrolled.
In the Lower Elementary class, our youngest students will learn big concepts through a variety of hands-on activities and lots of play. Students will have lots of time to dig deep into the topic of the week or play with open-ended toys, depending on their level of interest.
8-9 Year Olds
