About a Cottonwood School Day

We have two class offerings at Cottonwood: two mornings a week (Tuesday and Thursday) or three mornings a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Both classes are from 9am-12pm. 

We cap each class at 15 students. In the classroom we have two teachers and two parent helpers so the ratio of adult to child remains 3:1 or better.

Our classes are mixed age. At the start of the school year, the children are between 2 years 9 months and 5 years old. All of our children will have reached their third birthdays by the time we return from winter break.

Daily activity offering always includes:

Creative Arts • Blocks • Dramatic Play • Sensory Materials • Manipulatives • Science • Literature • Music & Movement • Snacks • Outdoor Play and Nature Education


About Our Play Spaces

Cottonwood has three main areas in our school: our outside playground and nature area, our dramatic play and building area, and our ‘big room’ where we have open ended art, literacy, science, and sensory play.


Would you like to see what we do?

Our family visits are a great way to find out what we do and how we play. Bring your child so they can see too.

Q: Is there a better way to find out if this is the place for your family?
A: No, not really.
