The school year generally starts in early September. Parents will be notified of the dates on a year-to-year basis. Before term begins, there is usually a meeting for parents to attend in late August and, additionally, there is an Ice Cream Social with parents and children invited. The Ice Cream Social takes place close to the first day of school.
Basic Morning & Afternoon Schedules
The 2-day morning class (8:30am to 11:30am) is designed for two- and three-year-olds and is known as “The Cubs.”
The 3- and 4-day classes, The “Bears” and The “Lions,” have a basic morning schedule (8-8:30am to 12:30pm) but both can be extended until 4pm. Space allowing, children can occasionally attend LNS on additional weekdays to make up a full week.
