WHY A ROLLY POLLIES PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAM?
NAEYC, the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, and the US Department of Health and Human Services all recommend that preschool programs offer physical education.
There are many reasons why. First, young children form healthy habits early in life. Secondly, movement can help children develop, not only motorically but emotionally and socially as well.
Our specially designed preschool adventures program is rooted in the belief that learning through doing is fundamental for young children and movement is essential to learning.
OPEN HOUSE: Drop in to meet the teachers and learn a bit about our program. Date TBA
HOW TO REGISTER: Please call the location you are interested. Crofton - 410-721-3780 or Severna Park - 410-544-9002. Also, please complete the Pre-School Registration Form here.

MAKEUP POLICY. While no tuition credit will be given for family vacations or times when a child is home due to illness, Rolly Pollies does allow pre-scheduled make-up classes.
