Hours and Classroom age range
Do you have at least five weeks of vacation plus 1 or 2 months off in the summer? At the Red Balloon we understand most families do not. We are open 12 months a year and do not close for a mid-winter or spring vacation. We support your need. Our doors open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 6:00 p.m. Children can come as late as 9:30 and get picked up from 4:00 on. Breakfast is served from 9:00-9:25. We also provide a healthy hot lunch for the children as well as an afternoon snack.
Along with a five-day program we also have a very limited two-day and a three-day program, all are full-day. The children range in age from 2 years old to 5 years old. We have three classrooms for different age groups. Children are at the following age ranges when the enter these classrooms:
Yellow Room: ages 2.0 to 2.6 (up to 11 children)
Blue Room: ages of 2.10 to 3.6 (up to 16 children)
Orange Room: ages of 3.10 and older (up to 20 children)
The children are given time at the end of the day to intermingle with the other children as well as become acquainted and comfortable with all of the staff.
Each room has three staff members, and at least 1 in each classroom has their Masters in Early Childhood Education with State Certification.
We have Accreditation from Middle States
