Welcome From The Director
Greetings and thank you for visiting the Lone Mountain Children’s Center website! We are in the process of implementing some exciting changes at our school which will allow us to offer longer class days and additional learning opportunities in all three of our classes. We have recently acquired a beautiful historic building adjacent to our current space in the Presidio. The building is undergoing extensive renovation and we expect it to be ready for our use by next summer. (A photo of the new building is below.)
Our expanded campus will include nearly 8,000 square feet of classroom space and over 3,400 square feet of outdoor space. Each of our three classes will offer longer school days beginning in September of 2013 as follows:
▪ Tuesday-Thursday Class (2.7 to 3.4 years) 9:00 to 1:00
$8,000 per year
▪ Monday-Wednesday-Friday Class (3.5 to 4.3 years) 9:00 to 1:30
$12,000 per year
▪ Pre-Kindergarten Class (4.4 to 5.3 years) 8:30 to 2:00 (M - F)
$17,000 per year (housed in the new building)
All three classes will now include a lunch period and the expanded hours will make possible additional indoor and outdoor activities. For example, we hope to offer the Pre-Kindergarten students additional weekly classes led by outside teaching specialists such as science, nature, dance, yoga, gymnastics and pre-academics.
Our core philosophy and instructional approach will remain the same, as will the size of our classes and the teacher-child ratio. Our application process is also changing somewhat as it is now possible to download an application directly from our web site.
We are tremendously excited as we prepare for these changes and will continue to update our website as new information becomes available. In the meantime if you have questions please feel free to reach me either by e-mail or phone. We appreciate your interest in Lone Mountain and we hope to have the opportunity to meet you and your child soon.
