Our Approach

Hobson is dedicated to early childhood education. Our classrooms have been created for children from 2- to 5-years old.

Parent-Child Class (2-year olds)

Saturdays* • 9:00am-10:45am • $86.00/month (2015-16 School Year)

This class introduces the concept of school to young children with the comfort of having a parent nearby. Such an experience makes the transition to school easier and gives you and your child a wonderful opportunity to share your child’s first school experience. A parent comes to each class with their child.

2AM Class (3 & 4-year olds)

Thursdays and Fridays
AM Class: 9:00am-11:30am • $205.00/month (2015-16 School Year)

There are one or two parent volunteers in class each day. The schedule gives each family equal opportunity to participate in the classroom. Parents are typically assigned to volunteer once every 4 weeks depending on the class size. We ask parents to please arrange for childcare for siblings. Because our community of families has the opportunity to get to know each other well, Hobson parents often swap childcare while they volunteer in class. Parents’ work and personal schedules are also taken into consideration when creating the parent volunteer schedule.

Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays

Footnote:

A registration fee of $80 and a supply fee of $50 is due for each year.
Hobson has a non-discriminatory policy towards membership.
The maximum size of each class is governed by licensing standards at 20 children per class, so we have a maximum number of 20 children in each 3-day class.
The staff has decided that it is more beneficial for the 2-day class to have  a maximum of 18 children in the classroom. Parent-Child classes have 13 children each, with their 13 parents, which seems to be the optimum number for our rooms!
