Cobblestone Kids Program Description:
Cobblestone Kids is the Community School’s latest endeavor in reaching our mission to engage, strengthen and connect our community.  This pre-kindergarten program is designed to provide our children with the highest-quality, early learning environment that is safe, nurturing, play-based, family-friendly, and affordable for Nantucket’s year-round, working families.

Recognizing that children learn at their own pace and in differing ways, we use a multi-sensory, brain-building and developmentally appropriate approach to grow the whole child; cognitively, academically, socially and physically.  STEM and Literacy-based activities are created to engage each student’s natural imagination and curiosity for learning while encouraging pro-social interactions. Parents/Caregivers are considered the child’s first teachers who play a key role in shaping their child’s future school success.  To encourage and celebrate this role, Cobblestone Kids will include regularly scheduled Family Fun programming open to all members of the family.

Requirement:  Child MUST be 4 years of age by September 1st, and able to use the bathroom independently.  

Hours of Operation:
     Academic Year:         September – June        7:35am – 5:15pm       Monday through Friday
     Summer Session:      July & August              8:00am – 4:00pm       Monday through Friday

Schedule:  Open year round with abbreviated hours during the summer session.
Closed during NPS’s regularly scheduled breaks and holidays.

     Registration Fee:  None
     Academic Year Only:  $11,400
