Extended Day Options
We collaborate with different extended day programs that offer a variety of scheduling options. These complement the school day at RPNS and create a full day for your child. Children are brought directly to or from RPNS by the instructors of the extended day program. To sign up for these independent programs, please contact them directly.
The Learn’ique Little Learners Kinder-Prep program is designed to support preschool-aged children in developing the skills they will need for Pre-K. Direct instruction and discovery play prepares children by supporting their development in the following areas: letter recognition, letter-sound association, pre-reading skills, and writing development. Additionally, children participate in pro-social activities pertaining to math and science. A packed lunch is provided from home and children are bused to and from RPNS.
