Tadpoles (2-3 Year Olds)

Tadpoles is our class for 2-3 year olds. In this Reggio and Montessori-inspired class, our youngest students spend the day having fun and learning through gross motor play, free play, art, and circle time.

Tadpoles meet Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:15-11:15 am and are taught by Melissa Egan.

Any child who will be 2 on or before September 1 is eligible to register for the Tadpole class. Tuition is $80 per month. For more information or to request financial assistance, please contact membership@downeycoop.com.
