Meeting everyday gives the children a consistent learning routine! Half-day class schedule ends after lunch time. After a full morning of curricular activities, the children enjoy bonding time with their peers and teachers over sharing a meal together!​

5 Full Day​s

The full-day program offers the most comprehensive Ya Ya curriculum and the children will get the most language benefits. A full-day includes a structured morning of curricular activities, then followed by lunch time and quiet rest /nap time. Afternoon activities may include outdoor time, sensory explorations or games that give the children time to practice their language and school skills. 

2 Morning​s

Also known as “Mini Ya Ya”, this program has a similar engaging curriculum as the regular Ya Ya program but at a more gentle pace with a longer phase-in period and a lighter schedule that meets only two mornings a week. It is perfect for two year olds who are not yet ready for a daily program. The days of attendance are fixed, to ensure the same curriculum progress for the same group of students.
