Learning through play...
Toddler (18months - 3 years)
The toddler class is geared toward children 18 months - 3 years (children can enroll as soon as they are 18 months old, provided there is space in the class). We offer two classes on Wednesdays or Fridays from 8:45 - 11:15. It is the perfect introduction to playing with similar aged children while a parent is with them. Our schedule includes outside time, circle time, snack time (bring from home) and free choice time; we end the school day with an additional outside time and a closing song. The parent/guardian follows his/her own child for the duration of the class time. Parents/Guardians also participate in a community clean-up at the end of the free choice time. Monthly parent meetings provide valuable speakers on relevant topics pertaining to parenting and education as well as teacher instruction.
AM Class (3-4 years)
The AM class is for children age 3 - 4. We meet Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8:45 - 11:15, with parents working one day per week. Our schedule includes outside time, circle time, snack time (bring from home) and free choice time; we end the school day with an additional outside time. Parents assist the teacher with fun enriching activities, including planing sensory or art activities with other parents at the parent meeting the second Tuesday of the month. Monthly parent meetings provide valuable speakers on relevant topics pertaining to parenting and education, teacher instruction, and time to plan and collaborate with other parents in the class.
PM Class (4-5 years)
The PM class for children ages 3.5-5 years olds. They attend Monday through Thursdays 11:45am-2:15 with parents working one day each week. Children bring their own lunches and eat at outside time. At school they enjoy outside play, circle time, and free choice time. Children also work on self regulation, letter, number and color recognition as well as handwriting skills in our weekly Handwriting without Tears program. Parents assist the teacher with fun enriching activities, including planing sensory or art activities with other parents at the parent meeting the second Tuesday of the month. Parents learn how to help children get along and work through daily challenges. The purpose of the class is to acquaint parent with the various stages of development of the preschool child to recognize the importance of play, and learn parenting methods. Parents will develop their skills as teachers and primary educators for their children in the preschool setting and at home. Instruction will be given using a laboratory for learning and practicing parenting skills.

Adult School Component
Roseville Parent Education Preschool (RPEP) is affiliated with the Roseville Adult School as a Parent Education Program. Being affiliated with RAS is beneficial for RPEP because they pay our teachers and provide us with equipment and facilities for our Parent Education meetings.
As RPEP members, parents are enrolled as Roseville Adult School students, complete ADA hours by meeting the participation requirements of the co-op, and help them attain annual goals. By paying our teachers' salaries and subsidizing our facility needs, RAS helps RPEP keep tuition costs very low in comparison to other preschool programs.
