Free child development program at Law accepting applicants

The Child Development program at Jonathan Law High School is looking for preschool-aged children for its program for the 2016-2017 school year.

The children need to be three or four years of age, and fully potty trained. The program meets two mornings per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 7:20 and 10:20 a.m. The high school students who are in the Child Development courses work with the children as they play and interact with their peers.

Although not a traditional preschool program, it incorporates arts and crafts activities as well as other learning centers where children can work on physical, intellectual, emotional, social and moral development. They learn appropriate ways to resolve problems and interact in socially acceptable ways with their peers.

This is a program that has been around for as long as Jonathan Law has existed, and the course continues to command a high level of interest among students.

The program is free.
