Sand Tots offers classes for children aged two through five. Potty training is not a requirement for admission. Any family of a preschool-age child is eligible for membership. Sand Tots has the cutoff date of September 1st of that academic school year to establish the correct age level for determining fall enrollment in all our classes: the 2/3’s class, the 3/4’s class and the 4/5’s. For example, to be eligible for the 2/3’s class, the child must turn 2 on or before September 1st.
Sand Tots does not discriminate against any child or parent, including but not limited to discrimination based on race, religion, color or creed.

Sand Tots Enrichment Classes:
The Red Shirts Enrichment Class is class is designed for students who would benefit from a bonus year before starting kindergarten. Since the implementation of public TK Programs in recent years, Sand Tots has expanded the age eligibility for Red Shirts students to include those who just miss the September 1 Kindergarten cut-off date, based on space availability.
Red Shirts Enrichment Class focuses on skill building in concepts and tasks specific to kindergarten readiness. The Red Shirts curriculum is presented in both English and Spanish to provide a dual language environment and further expose children to learning a second language. Staying true to our Sand Tots Philosophy, the Red Shirts approach to learning continues to be developmental, based on the readiness of each child. Activities are presented in small group settings with an emphasis on task completion and following direction.
Age eligible students must be enrolled in any of our three 4/5-year-old classes* Red Shirts students bring lunch from home and will transition directly from their respective classes at dismissal, where they engage in supervised lunch/free play until the curriculum start time at 12:30p.m.
