The Parent Tot Program is a unique class for both the child and their parents. A child must be two years old on or before September 1st of the year they attend to participate. Each class has a maximum size of 12 students with 1 teacher and 2 assistants in the classroom. This class meets once a week for an hour and a half. The goal of the program is to provide a first school experience which introduces the child to the routine and structure of a typical preschool day. It also allows the child to confidently separate from their parent and practice independence.
The parent and child are together in the classroom for the first 2 class times where they are introduced to the teachers and activities of preschool. After this period of adjustment, the children will practice their new found independence and be in the classroom with the teachers while the parents will be in another room participating in a parent discussion group. During class the children will do a craft, explore toys and puzzles, enjoy a snack together, engage in fine and gross motor activities and interact with teachers and other children. Parents will get to spend time with other parents who have children the same age and discuss various parenting topics. Our time together ends with parents joining their child for “circle time” which includes a story, finger plays, songs, counting and fun!
Please note: This is not a drop off program. One parent must attend each class with their preschooler.

What our parents say…
“I can’t say enough great things about this school. My son used to complain and cry frequently about going to his former daycare, sometimes when I picked him up, he would tell me he cried all day for me. Since he started Fallston Country PreK, he has not shed one tear and has never said that he doesn’t want to go. His teachers are wonderful at what they do! They are so organized and I always know what my son is learning and doing while he is at school. He loves the structure and routine of it, he knows what to expect and he feels safe and secure.”Brittany B.
Look no Further!!!!! Absolute Best experience for both of my daughters, Eve and Maci and for me too! The opportunity to ease into a school setting with gradual steps that this program offers is fabulous. I always learn so much from the other moms during our group discussion while our children are having the time of their lives playing with new friends down the hall and learning from the most loving, invested and experienced teachers. My children’s childhood would not be the same without Fallston Country Prek! Such a blessing to have these hands be a part of my babies early years.Heather K.
We love this school! My daughter gets so excited when I tell her she has school the next day & she absolutely loves her teachers!Kristi G.
