At LNS, we offer programs for children from two years nine months to six years old.
Children are placed in classes according to age and stage of development, with an attempt to balance gender.

The classes offered, and the days and times each class meets, may vary each year to meet the needs of the children in each year’s group of applicants. Each classroom has a co-teaching team, supplemented by a parent-helper on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Studio Blue also has a parent helper on Mondays.
